Project Quilting 14.6:

 The last challenge of this season's Project Quilting is "Conquer a Fear" - projects must involve conquering something that scares you.

Well. I really don't have a lot of what I would consider fear- anxiety, uncertainty, trauma, caution, sure. But I have trouble thinking of something that I personally fear for myself.

For my kids, though- oof. SO MUCH fear, SO MANY fears. And really, all I can do is trust that I've prepared them as well as I can to navigate the world, and advocate/work for a BETTER world so that I have less to fear, especially for the LGBTQ kids.

The quilt is my heart, which feels as if it's out of my chest and frayed around the edges when thinking of my kids' future.

Everyone needs love, especially the marginalized. With changes in governmental policies it is scary to think what kind of world is out their fro our kids and grandkids. Very nice piece!

What a beautiful representation of a parent's heart. May the world be softer and hold your children as lovingly as you do.
