Our creative group of quilters consists of new quilters, old quilters, and even beginners. No matter what your quilting experience, we are here to help and encourage each other.
If you are interested in helping us with the next quilt, please join our group on Thursday evenings from 6 to 8 pm in the Crafter’s Room.
We are proud to have made the Sunshine and Shadow quilt that was won by Edna Pelto at our 2012 Holiday Harvest Fair Quilt Raffle- see image below. This pattern, a favorite of the Amish, is said to portray the balance of human nature. The darks and lights represent good and bad, joy and sorrow, as well as the spiritual and actual body form. It is not a choice between the two – it becomes the balance of human existence. It reminds us of Solomon’s observations about there being a time for everything in Ecclesiastes 3:2-8. The challenge of life is to bring the two opposites together in perfect balance.
In the beginning of this quilting project, we were each given the task of choosing three blue fabrics – a dark, medium and light shade of blue. When we brought our choices together, we were amazed at the beauty of the blues together. The result is a simply beautiful quilt that was raffled and won at our 2012 Holiday Harvest Fair.
