October Meeting


Pat Smith joined us for our last meeting and shared with us her antique quilts and her knowledge of the Civil War Era. I wish I had thought about taking notes.  After Lois post them, I will put them here on the blog.

Here are the quilts she shared with us.  All are antique, except for the Dear Jane, which she is working on herself. Beautiful quilts.

And here our TADAS for the month

And now the spread.  Treats – edible and nonedible.



Here they are- new pics for June

Julie’s diligently completed quilt. Lots of fairies and very colorful. She also did some neat flowers on the corners.

Jerilyn said she wanted a big bag, well she made one!

Started some 30 years ago it took a back seat to other quilts that needed to be made- marriages, babies…etc. Now complete.

I could not resist getting Jan in her applique action.

Kate also did some pink and green blocks.
