Quilt for Maria

Gladys Reyes is a girl in Dakota County who was hit by a car, dragged a half mile, and run over again before the driver tried to take off. She had one arm amputated and faces numerous surgeries. She was given a quilt which was made by Nanette Sutherland and signed by her friends at school. Doris Kraemer made a quilt for Gladys' friend who witnessed the accident. We decided to also make a quilt for Gladys' mother, Maria. This is the quilt; blocks were made by many members, and machine quilting was done by Diane Schotl. Thanks to Karen Asmundson and Susan Skoog for coordinating this lovely project.

This quilt is for Gladys' friend.

March Meeting

We had a great quilt show again this year. Thanks to everyone who attended and to the participants. This quilt by Karen Asmundson, "Never Enough Nine Patches," tied for first place in Viewers' Choice. Watch for the other quilt photo (the other first place tie) to be posted soon.
Our March meeting will be on Tuesday, March 13 at the Eagan Community Center, 7:00 P.M. Visitors are welcome.
The drawing for the February Snowball Plus blocks will be held at our March meeting (Snowball plus Eccentric Star in brights with poka dots, stars, ribbons, stripes, etc). The March drawing will also be held (Snowball plus Ohio Star with 30s reproductions - if using white, please use bright white rather than off-white).
We will also watch a short DVD of our Nov '06 retreat, and Pat B. will take registrations and payments for the Nov '07 retreat. Dates are Nov. 15-18, 2007 at Camp Wapo, Amery Wisc.
