We had a wonderful show and tell at our February meeting! Thank you to everyone who shared!
We had a moment to reflect on the the loss of our friend Cheryl Elgin, and were able to see her last quilt. Nancy Stovall quilted it and her husband Matthew brought it to the meeting, where Cheryl's good friend, Patty Turner, and her daughter, Hillary Elgin, shared it with the guild. Hillary hadn't seen the quilt before, but now it will be hers.
