Twenty-one members and guests met this month
to make Smokey Mountain Stars lap quilts―probably the easiest star quilts
we ever made. The pieced block units themselves are traditionally
know as "Indian Hatchet" blocks! Several who attended the workshop
will be giving quilts made today as Christmas gifts in December to
residents at Calais Methodist Homes, where we hold our meetings.
Dana Bard, of Moose Island Quilting, has offered to machine quilt at no
charge donated quilts made at this workshop. More pictures of Smokey
Mountain Stars quilts are on January 2007 Show
& Tell and
February 2007 Show & Tell pages.
Thank you to "the other" Bonnie Hunter of
inspiration for the workshop.
