Quilt Circle of Friends has been doing this block of the month. The idea is to make large blocks (16") that resemble the blocks we see hanging on barns across Iowa.
Just one more block and we will be ready to figure out a setting. Any ideas?

|Kresten Munns from Aiken South Carolina brought her completed quilt in today to claim her prize of 25 fat quarters. Since she used our row in her quilt, we gave her the bonus gift of personally selecting the fabric she wanted cut for her prize.|
|And here is the back, nearly as fun as the front! Nice job, Krestin.|

It's time for another series of classes we call Sisters of the Cloth. We meet at the Adel Library on Saturday mornings from 10 am to noon on July 15, September 16 and November 18.
Half of our morning is spent talking about quilting, show and share of our quilts and refreshments.
The other half features the speaker of the day. At our July gathering, our speaker is Kathy Wilson, a professional historian and educator. The title of her program is Straight-laced Girls, Uptight Ladies and Loose Women. I am told Kathy is both entertaining and informative and she comes to us highly recommended.
Students choose to sit and just listen and enjoy or participate in Show and Tell or pick up the hand piecing supplies we provide a stitch a little.
This has been series of classes that we have held for many years, always very popular. If you would like to join us, just give us a call - 515-993-1170. Fee for all three classes is just $50 and includes program hand outs, patterns, sewing supplies, prize drawing and refreshments!
