As a new quilter and one who finds the stories told more interesting than the stitching, I am continually amazed by the women who quilt all day Friday and then go home to quilt some more. Cathryn makes countless baby quilts that are sold at the Historic Village museum. Joan is always working on quilts at home (although how she does it in a small house with all her cats is a mystery to me). Every week Gayle or Judy or one of the other women brings in a quilt finished at home to show the others. I look at the tiny stitches and marvel at their patience and skill.
Recently Lynda brought in a quilt that she designed and made for her grandchild. Lovely colors and such a fanciful design! I imagine the small person who received it will treasure it for years. This particular grandchild lives in Alaska so I like to think the tropical colors will help make the quilt especially warm in the winter.
