Last Monday’s meeting marked the first meeting of the Chinese New Year. 2013 marks the Year of the Snake. According to Chinese astrologers, 2013 will be a year for gaining more knowledge and broadening our outlook. Judging from this week’s show and share, Mariners are already taking that to heart. Kristina, Tina and Jackie revealed the transformer quilts they made at Ken Grantham’s workshop in January. The pattern design can “transform” into a number of layouts, so each quilt looks different. New member Jamie showed one of her quilts and one created by her eight-year-old daughter.
