September 2015 Show & Tell

Program Prize winners this month !
Secretary Connie Hansen won the Block of the Month.
President Lana Webb won the Fat Quarter Exchange.
Lana's friend, Jan Cate, bought 14 churn dash blocks used to make a friendship quilt at an auction recently. The blocks were made by members of the “old” Antioch Quilt Group that met at the Antioch Community Center located between Blanket and Zephyr.  A few of the blocks were made by either Lana's distant relatives or friends of her parents.  Among the blocks was one made her mother, Dora Turner who passed away in April of 2002.  The blocks are at least 20 years old or older. Lana's mother always wanted her to learn to quilt, so she's going to finish this top her mother's way -- completely by hand. 

 Debra Revay brought quilt tops to share that she made in the 1980's.
