The In Our Own Words Quilt is a collaborative quilt that is the brainchild of Kim Soper of Leland Ave Studios. Back on International Women's Day on March 8, 2018 Kim put out a call for women to contribute a hand-stitched word of empowerment that describes them. Kim's word was RESILIENT.

I chose to participate and chose the word BOLD to describe myself. I was one of many women who contributed to the project. Kim shared the words that had been stitched and sent to her. I love seeing so many empowering words, stitched in the hand of the maker.

Kim finished the massive 112" x 112" quilt in time to submit to QuiltCon for consideration for the 2019 show and shared recently on Instagram that the quilt is headed for QuiltCon! I'm proud to have contributed to the project, I look forward to seeing it in person, and I'm so pleased to see so many friends on the list of contributors in Kim's post about the finished quilt.

What is your word of empowerment describing yourself?
