What a great group of ladies! Such talented quilters, such giving, loving and sharing women.
You know, you can feel it…when you sit back and watch the dynamics of people within a group. You get a feeling for how involved they are with each other, and how they support and lift one another. Some groups gel, and some groups don’t – I’m sure you’ve felt it too with places you’ve visited and groups you’ve belonged to.
Within the guild are several bees or sewing circles.
Before my lecture even started they about brought me to tears with the presentation of a very special quilt JUST.FOR.ME.
Can you read the label? It says:
Created for Bonnie K Hunter
The Scrap Hunters Bee ((HAAAAAHAHHA!))
Prairie Star Quilt Guild,
St Charles, IL
In appreciation for Bonnie’s
creativity and generosity to quilters worldwide
And then it lists the members who worked on this quilt, which was longarm quilted by Cindy Krelle --who did a beautiful job!

Fabulous colors and so much variety!
I was seriously finding it hard to not bawl in front of a banquet room with 225+ quilters in attendance!
As I unpack things – I am thinking this needs a place of honor in my new cabin. I’ve got railings it can hang from! I’ve got walls to embellish to make the place my own – and these ladies can be here with me in spirit!
If you like the block pattern, Antique Tile was found in my Addicted to Scraps column in the September/October 2011 issue.
Thank you, Scrap Hunters Bee for your open heart and giving spirit!
