Before moving to Alaska, I was involved with the Ohio Valley Quiltersâ€™ Guild in Cincinnati where I met some amazingly talented women. I loved being involved so I edited the newsletter, helped with the website, coordinated the creation of community quilt (made with scraps donated by 72 different people in the city), served as vice president for 2 years and president for a year.
Typically when the president steps aside, the members make a block to show their appreciation. Since I donâ€™t often do big quilts, I opted to have them members show me their creativity. I gave them a pattern for a dress and printed faces. These are a few of the blocks I received.
It took me a bit but I finally bound them into a fabric book. Itâ€™s the largest fabric book Iâ€™ve made with 36 pages (each page 9â€ x 6â€. The book is a treasure, reminding me of the wonderful ladies in Cincinnati and their caring, creative spirit.
