The Ladies of the Rocky Mountain WaShonaji Quilt Guild

January 15 has been set aside as a day to commemorate the honor and the achievements of all who have contributed to civil rights. In particular, we pause to remember the dedication and determination we witnessed from Dr. Martin Luther Kings, Jr. as he honorably strove to promote liberty and justice for all. Thank you Dr. King This past week-end I had the pleasure to hold a card making class for several (15) ladies from the Wa Shonaji Quilters Guild, in Arvada, Colorado. My friend Jackie A., and I were guests at the home of Joanne and Ed Walton. For three, remarkable days of lively spirits, wonderfully insightful conversations. We also visited two colorful quilt exhibits at The Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library and the Aurora Mall, located in Aurora, Colorado. I am reminded once again how rich our heritage is and the responsibility we all have to create authentic chronicles of our history and the many contributions we have made towards the growth and development of the United States. Continue to leave your scrap book pages and quilting squares for the generations ahead of us. And enjoy a few photos from this week-end!
