LOVE QUILTS
We all have the times in our lives when we make quilts; birthdays, weddings, new babies, graduations, etc. I am looking for some quilts that are a little more than that. If you have a quilt that you made because something touched your heart and you had to make a quilt to express that love, bring the quilt to the February guild meeting. Be prepared to tell what circumstance happened that made you make that quilt.
