Dear Quilters 


September has flown by for me. We had a couple Dr. appts, Family Reunion that Pam and I catered and enjoyed spending the weekend with out of town family. Next was chicken cooking for the Chicken Festival. Next was the Pillowcase Sew a thon and several of us made 87 pillowcases for that. We were sent several prizes to give out for participating in the challenge. Next was 3 days cooking Chicken and Dumplings for the Chicken Festival  and during all this getting projects ready to send to Heartland Quilt Show and Laurel Co Extension Cultural Arts Day. In between all of this, we started a kitchen make over and had to eat out every night beginning Labor Day until two nights ago. I am sure glad this is all over.


If you haven’t been down in awhile, the 18 bolts of 30’s prints came in and many yards have been sold. Everyone seems to really like them. They were from Riley Blake fabrics.
