Quilt in Progress

This month has begun with the usual frantic activities that December brings to most of us, preparing for the coming church, community and family gatherings, cooking and baking, shopping and wrapping!  I am excited that all of it revolves around the people I cherish and enjoy so much.

One of the projects on my calendar is getting together with my friend Jo Berger and working on a quilt for her son David (Nate) Berger. He is a Peace Corps volunteer in Africa and has been there for the past two years. He is a fine example of youths commitment and dedication to making this world a better place.  We are so proud of him. During his time there he had been sending home a collection of fabrics that the women there use as clothing. Jo thought it a great opportunity to make a quilt as a remembrance of his time there. Since he still has one more year left, that gives us plenty of time to complete our project. It is going to be spectacular! (If I do say so myself.)

We cannot show you the quilt itself, just yet, but we will share our two days of working on it with you. We had so much fun!!

    I am so thankful for my family of sisters that help me realize an idea with great generosity, skill, love, and joy. Stitch by stich, row by row, that’s how to make our quilting grow. Love you!

  2. Wow, what a fantastic quilt with I’m sure a memory attached to each piece of material. Looks like you are having lots of fun as well.
