I was asked to present my quilts last week at their March meeting, and was honored to do it. I think most people who have known me for nearly four decades (what???) were surprised to see me getting up in the front of the sanctuary and actually doing public speaking. It surprises me as well!
For a couple of Sundays prior to the presentation, there was even an insert in the bulletin.
I have made this presentation several times, but always out of town. Considering that most of my inspiration comes from places in and around Fresno, it was fun to mention them and know that the audience knew what I was talking about.
At one point I had them look up at the ceiling, at the acoustical tiles.
One of the best comments later was when one of the men told Mark that he had been around quilting for years and wondered how I could possibly talk about quilts for an hour. So he was surprised when I showed my inspiration photos and then showed the quilt that resulted from that inspiration--he found it interesting and informative. Success!
