2018 Goal of 120 quilts
Thank you everyone for the wonderful effort on making comfort quilts, in the first 6 months of this year we have had 100 quilts turned in. All we can say is WOW!
It is finally here, the big reveal of our quilt challenge for this year. Just a quick reminder that you need to have your quilt ready for judging and turned in before the meeting which begins at 7 pm. Please sign your 3 x 5 card, pin it on the front of your quilt face down, and we will put the no. on it when it is turned in so the judge will be ready to have at it. Looking forward to all the gray, white, and add a color and Ohio star quilts.
