Yesterday, the Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild held a class to teach Girl Scout Troop 3502 the art of quilting. Nine girls and their troop leaders spent three creative hours learning to quilt. Elisa Woods taught the class with help from other members of the Brown Sugar Stitchers. The class resumes next month.
Although my grandmother Clara Ford was a quilter, I was not interested in learning to quilt when I was young. I remember the big quilting frame in the middle of the floor in her small house. Lucky for me, I inherited eight of her quilts. Sometimes things that are buried deep within us blossom late.
