This is a post that I’ve delayed writing for several weeks, not because I didn’t want to write it. More like, I don’t feel like my words can do justice for my feelings. So reading knowing, this all means a lot to me even if my words fail me
Three years ago, I started the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild more for myself than anything else. The modern quilting movement was gaining ground. New chapters were forming. I want to be apart of it all. I stepped out of my comfort zone and started a new chapter. My life hasn’t been the same since. I have many new friends. I’m inspired daily by their talent and generosity. I enjoy quilting even more than I did three years ago.
In January, our guild elected new officers. I was officially stepping down as president. Others were interested in leading the group, I was ready to let others lead. During show and tell, Colleen shared this awesome quilt made from Kati’s Honeycomb pattern.
Then she turned it over, explaining that various members of the quilt make blocks for the back and the quilt is for me! I was shocked. I didn’t anticipate this at all.
I love this quilt. Thanks to everybody that made it possible. Every time I look at it I’m reminded of how fortunate I am.
