Thank you to the guild members that worked the month of August at the museum.
Lynn and Judy are sewing a quilt on to a sheet in this picture.
This is the quilt that they prepared for storage. Lovely way to present signatures
as you can see from the close up.
Leila and Vevia really enjoyed documenting the above Red Cross Signature quilt.
Quite a few famous names were included in the 300+ names listed. Rumor is there is another quilt coming in shortly that has over 425 names. Wow! and ugh!
Leila, Martha and Bev are seen here rolling the "Red Cross" quilt up for safe keeping.
Thank you Ladies for putting in over 216 hours on 28 quilts. When we take our grandchildren to the new museum downtown and they get to look up the quilts on the computer - all of our work will have paid off.
Not all of the work this summer has been done inside. One of our past guild members that has gone away to college, is putting her education to good use. Kelsey's brother-in-law wanted to surprise his mom and got Kelsey to paint sunflowers on a building at her farm. When you are driving up, you really have to look twice to see that they are not real nor the metal sunflowers stuck in the ground. Through dark of night, bugs, dogs, cats, scary noises and then the beating down sun and the near heat stroke during painting - Kelsey put seven flowers up on the building. Hear it was a wonderful surprise - good job Kelsey. Keep up the art work and we will be looking forward to seeing what kind of quilts your eduction inspires you to make in the future.
