    I called this quilt Be Careful When A Naked Person Offers You A Shirt. This is an African saying, most famously quoted by Maya Angelou, who used it as a metaphor when speaking about how we must love ourselves before we are capable of offering love to others. Both the quilt and the saying remind me very much of a dear friend who I wish to love herself much more than she does, because she is worthy of it.
