Forever Quilt
by: Kathi Walsheck

Hello, My name is Kathi Walsheck. I am 56 years young, married with no children, reside in Woodbridge NJ and have been quilting for about 8 years. I absolutely love to quilt and have a room in my home designated for my hobby. I have been thinking of the things that are most important to me in life and it is my parents and grandparents and other elderly people whom I have crossed my path and stuck inside my heart, oh and the other passion I have is Quilting. So I decided to combine the two.

Recently I have wanted to create a huge quilt that represents all of us in the USA who adore quilting as much as I do. I am asking one guild for each 50 states for their creativeness and to invite you and your guild members to create a block for a quilt that I am putting together. You only need to send in your (sandwiched and stippled) block, leaving 2 inches on each side for the border in between each block). I will (with my own money of course) have this be professionally put together into a huge wonderful quilt. I then will have the quilt shown at quilting shows throughout the year in each state when they have their shows. (I am not showing this for a contest to win, because we are all a part of it, there is no one winner on this quilt, as we all are winners). However, it will be hung with a huge banner that says, FOREVER QUILT, and your stories will be in a little booklet at the show so they know which block is yours).

It is called: "Forever Quilt"
It is to Honor Our Elderly
It's creative quilting blocks that will represent which elderly person that has inspired us most in our lives. This could be your grandma and her favorite recipe, your dad when he danced with you at your wedding, your next door neighbor when she gives you her favorite treats at Christmas. The one main theme of your block has to be Elderly and what the inspiration is. Could be you went hunting with your dad or granddad and you make a "flying geese" block, maybe your favorite memory is from your summer trip with your grandparents or just staying at their home, maybe will inspire a Log Cabin block. Be creative. Use special blocks and colors that signify your remembrance of that moment. My memory is of my grandmother and how she made the best chicken soup with dumplings in the world. She passed away about 10 years ago, and to this day, I cannot cook those dumplings like she made them. So I will honor her with a block portraying this memory. Feels like I can still smell the soup sometimes. So, my quilting block will be with this inspiration.
You must also include a short 1/2 page story on why this block is special to you. Include your name, age town and state you reside in. (you need not include the Guild name as I am only contacting one guild per state and I have chosen yours for the state of Alabama)! 

Must submit your blocks from December to March 2017. I am going to have the quilt professionally assembled and completed by end of April. First show will be in May, 2017. I will let you know the progress and which shows it till appear in.
Happy Quilting!
