This month at Maurene's we had our usual show and tell, but in addition to that we went around the room and each of shared how we got started in quilting and told what inspires us today. Each of us agreed on one thing, quilting is a wonderful haven, a fun, peaceful and creative place in the midst of our hectic lives.
Our little group, the Material Girls, has been meeting since early 2002, over ten years ago. We've had many members and visitors come and go through the years and some who have been with us since the very beginning. Every month we look forward to getting together, sharing with and learning from each other. Together we have produced hundreds of quilts. It's been amazing and yet we continue to learn something new at each meeting. That's why we love quilting so much.
We now have a strong bond with each other. We celebrate in each others' successes and we have cried together through life's trials and challenges. That's what friendship is all about and can't wait to see what the next ten years brings!
Here are the show and tells from this month:
Carolanna's '66 bug. She and her dad completely restored it over the past couple years. This is a first for our show and tells!! Great job, Carolanna.
Thank you Maurene!
See you next month, where we will meet at Rachel's on Wednesday, Sept. 26th.
