The 19 women seen above are among 24 women who have been meeting once each month to work on a “quilt-as-you-go” project. The project involved sewing a large variety of colored strips to batting and backing, and then joining the squares together to make a lap quilt. Attendees mentioned the fellowship and encouragement they received at each meeting as highlights of the eight-month project. Participants included (front row, from left) Barbara Pritchard, Inis Reedy, Matilda Parks, Cathy Hicks, Rebecka Watkins, Patricia Yinger, Sharon
