Tuesday Quilt Group

Once a month we come together from our different lives and different points of view to sit for a few hours, do a show and tell, and then companionably work.  It is this exact thing, this feeling of sitting and working in a group of talented people, that I am only now coming to understand as a truly energizing moment in my life.

Yesterday we were at Deanna’s and the show and tell was beyond lovely.  Deanna’s grandmother and Lynda’s grandmother were sisters.  They each have quilts made by their grandmothers, and both Deanna and Lynda come out of a tradition of quilting.  The first quilt Deanna showed us was one with a familiar star…

the day a few months ago that I showed this wacky quilt I was working on…
