came to visit us at our August meeting.  Jane Tenorio-Coscarelli gave us a delightful slideshow/talk.  I haven't laughed so much in a long time! She also brought her wonderful patterns and kits for us to buy.  Thank you so much, Jane!

Here are just a few of the wonderful quilts she showed during her trunk show:

Our Row by Row for the VA Hospital

Here are the row by rows made by our members from leftover blocks contributed to Soldier's Angels in 2011.  If your photo is missing, please note, I tried to get each one, however some may have turned out too blurry to post. If you'd like to submit one, just send it to our email address and I'll add it.  All did a wonderful job!
