Quilt Guild Day 109/365



Leslie picked me up early for the PPQG meeting. For the uninitiated that's the Piecing Partner's Quilt Guild.

Some people go to the meeting to see the quilts and hear the speakers.

Me- I go to eat and knit, grab things off the Put and Take table, and socialize.


 

But seriously, I did get up and share my story of the quilt I won at the Rossville Sesquicentennial last summer. Did you hear that story?

Cheryl had a bunch of frequent flier miles wasting away so she booked us a flight to Indy so we could attend the town we graduated from's 150th Anniversary. She was great- got the hotel, rental car, fed me and even bought me raffle tickets for the quilt they were giving away. Guess who won? That would be ME!


The quilt top was found in one of my favorite teacher's house, Mr Carl Hunt. It's estimated to be about 75 years old. One of my LEAST FAVORITE teachers, Mrs. Nancy Cox finished the quilt. Now I sleep under it every night. Luckily I don't have nightmares of GAA or PE class.

Great story on the guild meeting and winning the quilt. Mrs. Cox evidently had hidden talents.
