Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day...it seems like the summer months bring out the patriot in us all.  The charity quilting group will be working on quilt tops to donate to the Southern Tier Quilts of Valor over the next few months.  You can help by donating 5" squares of red, white or blue fabrics cut from your scraps. (NO flower prints, please!)  Squares will be collected at the June and July guild meetings.
