The Mother of Girl Scouts

"I Remember Mama"
21x32
Thsi quilt honors my hero and mentor, Juliette Gordon Low (1860-1927), who, when she was over 50 and almost deaf, started the Girl Scouts in Savannah, Georgia in 1912. The fact that she never let her deafness, back problems, or cancer keep her from full participation in life encourages me to push past any challenges I may encounter and keep my eyes on my dreams. Juliette's dream lives on a Girl Scouts continues to be the pre-eminent organization for girls in the U.S.A.

Quilt is in Quilter's Newsletter Magazine Jan/Feb 2006
and "I Remember Mama" book published in 2005 with quilts from all three years of the exhibit.
