This quilt group is predominanty beginning quilters. I don't mind this, because the pattern we are currently working on is easy. I have so much fabric, that it's nice to have some sit and the machine and sew and not think too much about it. Making something with your hands and seeing the completed top is a wonderful thing. We are making a Christmas quilt pattern, and I've started 2 Christmas quilts I haven't finished, so the fabric is prepped and we traded squares for a charm quilt scrap effect.
In the past this quilt group has made many charity quilts. I happened to have some connections at Kosair and so they gladly gave me 7 quilts to deliver for distribution or possible sale to benefit the hospital. I machine quilted this one and the rest were done while the quilt group was learning . Jennifer went with me to deliver the quilts at the Cancer Research Center in downtown Louisville.
It's always a good thing to suppliment your quilting and it's not uncommon for quilters, who recognize a good thing, to go out and find another group to join.
