On March 16, 2010, YOU ARE OUR MEETING. Members are to bring any and all older quilts they have access to -- anything made between 1850 and 1950. Quilt historian, Barb Eckoff from Iowa, will be joining us to talk about quilt history. The program on March 16 is dependent on members bringing something to talk about - no matter what condition the quilt is in!

Barb places the quilts in date order, and then talks about the particular fabrics that are in the quilt - reflecting style and colors of the time, as well as the quilt pattern names. It is helpful if members have a tiny bit of the history of the quilt - who made it, the part of the country it was made/found in, any dating in the stitching, and family stories. Even if you don't have a family heirloom, it's fun to hear other stories and see the interesting quilts. Please join us!
