We had a great program at our local quilt guild on Thursday night. "Quilt Care and Repair" by Carmen Whorley. Carmen is from Springfield, MO and did a great job.
She talked about the causes of quilt death-abuse by people - body oils, pets, poor storage, and natural disasters: such as floods, tornadoes, and fires.
Joann brought some quilts that needed needed some TLC.
This is the quilt our guild made to donate to the band at the local high school so they can raffle it and raise money for the band. The center star is paper pieced music notes.
