March 20: MTQG member Maxine Everart trunk show
Following are some things Maxine is sharing with us about her quilting story: "I began sewing when I was 4 years old with my nanny, Ellen. We did doll clothes. During my life there was always a lot of sewing going on including my being a 4-H leader and being named 4-H leader of the year for Montana in 1955. I did not sew quilts until much later.
My first quilt was made in 1983 for my daughter Renee's bridal shower. It was supposed to be a simple quilt...log cabin. I self taught myself to hand quilt and to this day still hand quilt the quilts that I hope my family will pass down in their families. Because I was teaching I did not make another quilt until my youngest daughter, Teri,was married in 1989. It was a fun project done entirely by hand..crazy quilt.
Then my daughter, Shanna was married in 1991 and again for her shower I made a quilt. At that time I was getting ready to retire and did so in 1993. My wish for retirement was that I have time to quilt...It is my life now."
