The four-patch is one of the oldest American quilt patterns, updated in this pattern using rotary cutters, modern sewing machines and strip-piecing techniques.  An easy, fun class, this workshop was used as this year's lap quilt project.  The guild will provide backing, batting and machine quilting for all who donate their lap quilts to residents at Calais Methodist Homes.  Thank you to Dana Bard of Moose Island Quilting who donated 5 gift certificates for free machine quilting.  The lucky winners include:  Wanda Pollock, Jane Eaton, Iva Kinney, Joline Cook, and Liz Trouant.  Thank you, everyone, who participated!

Participants with Peppermint Twists in all stages of completion.  Can't wait to see the finished quilts!

Mary Ann (Disappearing 9-Patch) and Liz (Fiesta) worked on other lap quilts
