Strips and Strings Quilts in May

Ann Shows and several friends showed their strips and strings quilts at our May meeting. Ann will lead a workshop in the making of this string star quilt the following week.

Jean Robertson also showed her scrappy quilt made of leftover blocks.

Our generous members brought in 108 pillows and 35 walker totes and 8 catheter bag covers.

Shirley Wiltshire reminded members to sign up to help with the Bluberry Jubilee in Poplarville June 8. We were also reminded of the Children's Quilt Parade at the July meeting, when all members are urged to donate a quilt.
