Almost Raggedy Hearts

The Raggedy Hearts Quilt is just sitting, waiting to have the binding stitched down AND to be 'washed' and dryed for it's finishing touch. It's looking pretty so far. Thanks to Maurene for sewing the blocks together and Carolanna for quilting it on her new machine!

Materials Girls meeting for this month is Wednesday, April 30th at 10:00 a.m. at Kathi Thompson's home. We are having a guest speaker, Karen MacCarter. Karen is a great quilt maker and appliquer. She titled herself, The Plaid Queen several years ago, even making a quilt portraying herself. Karen moved to Eagle a few years back, loves to quilt and belongs to quilt guilds in three different states. She will show us many quilts and tell us of her quilting journey. She will give us some tips. Come prepared with any questions you may have. Be sure to bring your completed items to share. Invite a friend to come hear Karen speak!
