Leah Day started quilting when she was 25, finally realizing her dream of quilting because she wanted to make something special for her wedding.  The quilt didn’t turn out as planned, but it put her on the path to learning how to quilt professionally.  She touchingly shares how her mother inspired her to quilt, and it’s not the story you’re expecting to hear.  Read her story HERE to learn how her mother’s choices led Leah to where she is today.
