This week 15 ladies attended. Betsy Hoffman brought in a lap quilt she had made from blocks made by her husbands grandmother (I think that's right). They were made probably in the late 1800's. She had enough blocks to made 2 lap size quilts, one for each of her daughters. This one was lovely. I know Betsey was worried about somehow ruining these beautiful blocks but on the contrary, her quilt complements the blocks and allows their beauty to shine. Marguerite announced that she is going to raffle off her mile-a-minute quilt to try to earn some money for her granddaughter who is going to Alaska next summer in the people-to-people program. She will be selling tickets at Nichols on Saturday and her daughter is holding a spaghetti supper at the firehouse so they hope to earn some money for Alexandra. Marguerite promised to bring in some tickets next week so we could buy some so bring your money! And remember, this Sunday, from 2 to 4, Kris Gregson Moss from Glens Falls will be talking about and showing her quilts. Hope to see you there!
