Quilting Bee

My friend, Karleen, has a creative approach to productivity. I quite like it! She says that the cold weather months are for quilting and the warm ones are for working in the garden. She does both with excellence, so I know it would be of benefit to me if I would heed her counsel. This winter she invited me to join our local, community quilt guild with her. What fun it has been! Local ladies meet once a month at the community grange where quilts are stitched. Family, friends, and community members benefit from all the busy stitching! There are some very gifted quilters in the bunch! A spirit of cooperation, sharing, teaching, and learning together is evident. And a lunchtime potluck is an added perk! As time goes on I'll share pictures of some of the quilts being made. I think you'll enjoy them. Stay tuned.

  1. So cool! I always enjoy seeing the various ways that women fellowship with one another. What happens to the quilts once they are completed?

  2. Hmmm...quilting and just can't go wrong with that combo! :o)

    I can't wait to see some photos of your quilts, LaDonna.

  3. Looks like a fun time! :-)

  4. I love the connection to history and community in quilting bees!

  5. How fun to have a quilt group like this one. What a treasure you have. Loved seeing the quilt work being done.
