Quilt Sharing

Do you have a quilt you'd like to know more about? The Rogers Historical Museum is hosting "Quilt Sharing" day on November 17 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.

You may bring your quilt that day and have our resident "quilt detectives" Rheba Ford and Alice McElwain uncover answers to your questions. Rheba and Alice and both students of quilt history and quiltmaking and they would love to see your treasures!

You can make a reservation by calling The Rabbit's Lair at 479.636.3385 -- Tell your friends about this great opportunity!

"Saturday Sampler" Update!

We're having a great time with our "Saturday Sampler" friends -- on Saturdays and Thursday evenings.

October will bring the 10th month of blocks -- make sure you attend and see the completed quilt top! I hope you're all keeping up and will be ready to assemble your quilt in December. We'll have kits available with finishing fabrics -- accent border and outer border -- or you may choose your own fabrics. The blocks all fit together (no sashing will be needed) so when the 12 blocks are done all you need to do is add the borders.

Just in case you haven't made Block 8 yet -- here is a picture of it (It was left out of the kits).

Let me know how you're doing on this project!
Only Because of His Grace,
