We are Building Quilts to Make Friends
For 2015 our emphasis will be on lap size quilts for Habitat for Humanity.
Our quilt show theme
is "Building Friendships Through Quilting." So we are 'building' quilts
to encourage those at Habitat who strove to build a home for their
family. We encourage individuals and groups to add a friendship or house
blocks to their quilt. More details and nstructions for a Friendship
Block is available on our website
