I assumed that I would be writing this as we were traveling down the road in our motor home. Instead, I am sitting at my desk; so much for the best laid plans. I see so many parallels between a quilt and our guild.
All of the many different colors and pieces sewn into the the top. The batting and backing that are the working part of the quilt. The actual quilting and binding that hold the layers together.
I enjoy working on quilts to create something beautiful as well as the members of SSQ that grow into something beautiful.

TLC (Tender Loving Care) quilts
At Sunset Slope Quilters our purpose is to perpetuate the rich heritage of quilting in America, and to promote the art and perfection of the craft. We meet to learn from well-known and local speakers, to share our quilts and to conduct our business as well as enjoy fellowship with each other. Workshops are also held for learning skills. We have a number of satellite groups that meet to stitch for fun, to learn from each other and to work on community charity projects.
With warmth and love, TLC (Tender Loving Care) quilts are made, signed by members of our guild and given to a member diagnosed with cancer or other illness.
