Elise Schebler Roberts:
“…reasons people quilt: to commemorate, celebrate, grieve, take social action or to be part of a community.”
“In retrospect, I can say this: Everyone, sometime in her life should make a quilt just because of the pure joy of doing it, one that she makes only for herself, one whose main value is that it makes her happy, one that she does not need to justify or explain.”
