Hi everyone! Terri here. My chapter is about the theme Identity chosen by Helen. This theme challenged us to think about who we are, our relationship to those around us, our contributions to society, and much more. What identifies us? What identifies you? For my Identity quilt, I chose to portray the prominent roles I play on a day-to-day basis. I started making a list and my key words (mother, daughter, wife, sister, teacher, cook, artist, quilter, friend) found their way onto my quilt. These words are sewn into the spikes of hair. The crazy sort of character on my quilt portrays how we can become overwhelmed at times trying to play many roles at one time.
When I think back to when I was asked to join this group, I remember that I contemplated not joining. I thought that perhaps I wouldn't have the time for it and I wasn't sure it was something I wanted to do. Luckily I decided to join and I've never regretted it.
If you could join a group like this, would you? If so, what appeals to you?
