2018 Goal of 120 quilts

 

CONGRATULATIONS ladies, we have collected 141 quilts in 9 months!!!!!

 

In Sept, we had 32 quilts turned in (21 of which were Challenge Quilts) for a total of 141 to date.

 

The Challenge Quilt Exhibit at the Warren County Museum started out as a great success.  The folks at the museum were very impressed with our display.  Opening Night was lots of fun with good treats and wine, and attendees included 4 of the ladies from Fabric Shack.

 

We hope all of you had a chance to see the Exhibit.

 

Thanks to Kathy Wilder for the suggestion and to those who helped organize and hang the quilts (great display), Lee Schon, Penny Mathias, Donna Maxwell, Nancy Seccia.  And also to Connie Engel, Deb Paris, Lyn Miller for refreshments Opening Night.  And to anyone else I might have missed.
