A QUILTER’S JOURNEY – A Journey of Healing

Many years ago, I belonged to a quilt guild in Germany made up of military spouses and a few local German quilters. A very close friend of mine in that group, who later served a year as guild president, developed cervical cancer. Over the years of her long journey of treatment including a move back to the United States, many of us also scattered across the United States as we were restationed. But we all remained close, and we shared one person in our hearts who we cared for deeply. We felt compelled to do something (as quilters do). 

Nashville, TN was the place! We gathered for the quilt show, and stayed at the same hotel. Before we arrived, we made personal blocks that had our appliqued hand print outline, which we embellished to show our love and caring for this individual. Then, during the shows down time, we sat together in the lobby of the hotel and stitched them all together, sandwiched the top and bottom, quilted, and bound that quilt. What a special time!

A few of us were able to then meet up in Mississippi, and drive to Florida to hand deliver that quilt to our dear friend. 

To me, this story was a journey of healing. It’s one small journey that involved many people coming together and healing through our craft and sharing of our hearts.

What quilt can you share that tells a story or journey? Do you have a quilt that commemorates a cross country journey? Do you have a quilt that reflects one person’s life journey, maybe with photos or mementos?
Do you still have your very first quilt? How has your journey of skill building, and experience changed your impression of what you thought quilting would mean to you in your lifetime?

Be thinking of quilts for the show you’d like to hang that would illustrate your quilter’s journey, whether it’s a journey of healing, a journey of someone’s life, or just a journey through learning a new skill.

If you’d like to share, I'd like to begin collecting stories to publish on the web-site. We’ll be creating a space dedicated to the show where we’ll be posting updates, calls for volunteers, important dates, and special stories of members’ journeys in quilting.

Please send your story to me (include a picture if you’d like), Erika Anderson. Put “A Quilter’s Journey” in the subject line of your email, and we’ll post them on the web-site as we get closer and closer to what promises to be a terrific quilt show.

See above for the list of volunteers needed for tasks that to be done in the next year, including creating some small quilts for our raffle quilts activity. If you already know you’d like to help, please let me know!! 

I’m so happy to be meeting everyone and working on this show.
