Quilter Rosaline Kennedy
Pattern: Odds & Ends
Bits and pieces equals an organized whole. I learned to sew at my mother’s side helping her sew costumes and gowns for family. I became a wife and mother and enjoyed sewing clothes, making spreads with matching drapes and cushions and sail covers for our boat. After retiring in Mitchell County, I caught the “quilting bug”–found it challenging and relaxing. It’s fun meeting people with the same “bug.”

I have been sewing just about all my life. Started with sewing in Home Economics in 7th grade. First garment, a gathered skirt. I chose this block because it was easy and could use all the fabric selection. I love quilting because it gives me great satisfaction to combine different colors. I’m always about the outcome. Gathering with fellow quilters is my greatest experience. They are so supportive.

Quilter Jeannette Murray
Pattern: Star Blocks
I started quilting a year ago and I’m hooked! I love fabric, color, interesting designs, and just the idea that I will never run out of projects because the possibilities are infinite. Quilting is also great therapy.
We’d like to second Shirley’s comments: Our area quilters are very supportive! We are so grateful.
We’ll begin selling raffle tickets after the top is pieced (so that people can see what they’ll win if we pull their name from the hat). Look for posters & tickets the week of April 13.
