Redemption

“Redemption” is the story of a dress that would have been thrown out with the trash had not someone intervened. The dress was in a situation, infamous and humiliating, after its owner lost a great deal of weight. She stood up during church and the skirt decided to not stand up with her. When I found out that the outfit would be thrown out, I said, “No, no, let me have it. I can make a quilt out of it.” A lot of ideas later, almost a year and a half of them, it finally came together and instead of the dress being thrown away, it is the centerpiece of this beautiful quilt. It is the best way I know of signifying what God does with us when we place ourselves in God’s loving care after our own lives have been trashed.
