Today we had 14 ladies attend and lots of great show and share! Pat brought in a pile of lap quilts she's made to give to charity, Kathy Olsen brought in a Thimbleberries wall hanging, Fran had an Amish Star fling quilt, and Anne Bave had a bright and beautiful baby quilt. I hope I didn't forget any. I think this year we're going to have a great quilt show! Marguerite brought in her mile-a-minute quilt for us to see and buy raffle tickets on. She's raffling it to earn money to help pay for her granddaughter's trip to Alaska next summer with the People-to-people program. So far sales have been brisk so hopefully it will ease some of the financial burden on the family. Last Sunday the library brought a speaker, Kris Gregson Moss from Glens Falls, to show her quilts and tell us about them. The ladies really liked her and many want to try making quilts like hers (squiggle and ravioli quilts). She was clearly an inspiration!
