Seeing this quilt hanging at the International Quilt Festival made my eyes tear up. My heart even raced for a moment and then a beautiful calm filled me full. This quilt is the brain child of The Denver Metro Modern Quilt Guild. One member had an idea and presented it at a meeting. By the following meeting we were laying out the blocks that 28 members had made and contributed. And then at the next month’s meeting we were all standing in front of it in a state of amazement. It bonded us like no other project could. I’m still collecting my thoughts on why this has had such an impact on our guild, however, for now I can say that I know it has made us bold and confident in our voice as a guild.
