As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, there are three quilting groups in our park: The Patriotic Quilters, The Creative Quilters, and the Texas Quilting Grandmas.

The Creative Quilters hold a quilt show each season to display their work and to raise money to buy materials for the charity and veterans quilts that the other two groups make.

The members of this group are extremely talented and have won prizes for their work at other quilt shows both here in the RGV and at fairs near their summer homes.

This small group of quilters (around 10 members in any given year), had over 200 items on display at this year’s show!

Each year, they also hold a raffle to raise funds.

Hubs’ name was drawn for one of the prizes at this year’s show.

We were thrilled to win this snowman quilt!

Photo Note: Because I took so many photos at the quilt show, I decided to make a collage of just a few of them for my feature photo vs posting each one individually. (I try to be conscientious about the amount of space I use on my blog, so it serves me over the long term without having to delete posts to make room for more)

“After all, a woman didn’t leave much behind in the world to show she’d been there. Even the children she bore and raised got their father’s name. But her quilts, now that was something she could pass on.”
