19 ladies today. We took down the quilt show. It is always so much easier to take down than it is to put up. Kathy O. brought in a quilt to sandwich. Our 2 new members each brought in a quilt to show us. Debbie brought in an antique appliqued quilt made by her husbands' grandmother. She wanted advice on how to wash it. Fran was going to supply her with the proper soap. Connie brought in a maroon log cabin she had made. They were both lovely. Mary Beth Burrill and her daughter Margaret came in looking for advice on how to make a quilt out of various zebra fabrics. MaryAnn M. and I got them started. Cathy Y. taught us how to cast on yarn for knitting so that the end won't roll. And a few people came in with blocks made for the Forest Dream quilt we plan to make. We will work on it some more next week. Also next week we will learn how to make a bug jar block. The Junior Nimblefingers will be meeting on Sat. March 8th and they will make a bug jar block so hopefully some of the ladies will help out with the kids.
