When Koroit mother Julie Bartlett was given a quilt for her sick son more than 20 years ago, little did she know he'd still find comfort in it two decades later.
Friend Christine Smith said that was why her and her fellow quilters do what they do.
"A quilt stays with you forever and you always have a connection with it," Mrs Smith said.
Mrs Smith and her team of 20 will be showcasing their talents at a Quilt Show on Friday and Saturday.

The display will include more than 200 quilts including 22 that will be donated to the Royal Children's Hospital's Butterfly Ward.
"Most of us have had contact with the Royal Children's," Mrs Smith said. "Either through grandchildren or children or nursing."
The group, who meet weekly at its Tower Hill Road address, know all too well the sentiment behind a home-made gift.
"Julie's son Luke is now in his late 20's and he still has the quilt," Mrs Smith said.
"I have a nephew who had a brain tumour and he still sits with his quilt while he plays computer games."
The quilts have been created over the last six months.
"We wanted to do it before the Good Friday Appeal," Mrs Smith said.
"We pooled all our scraps together and sorted them by colours and images and away we went."
The group last held this event in 2016.
"We said we'd never do it again because it's such hard work," Mrs Smith said.
"But here we are."
Mrs Smith said the event would also include tea and coffee and various craft items for sale.
RCH south-west auxiliary president Janine Sheen said the quilts were the largest donation from this region.
"It's absolutely amazing," she said. "These quilts will go to kids in dire need and wrap them up in love.
"These ladies deserve to be recognised."
The Yangery Cottage Quilt Show is from 10am to 4pm at the group's Tower Hill Road address.
