Our traveling quilt display was sponsored by the 440 Quilt Shop.

Five members completed their traveling quilts in time for the show. As explanation, traveling quilts started with a member providing a block and some guidelines that could range from very loose to very restrictive. Each month the quilt passed to a new member who would then add a block and pass it on next month until the quilt came back to the member who started it. Each member then had the fun of putting their quilt pieces all together. These are the results.

Lisa’s on the right.

Because we don’t use drapes behind our quilts for the show, we get this wonderful effect of seeing many quilts at once.

We have a few members who sew clothes in additional to quilts.

Tarra loves to sew clothes for herself and for her family. She’s wearing one of her dresses and she displayed several of the ones she’s made for herself and for her daughter.
