Log Cabin Quilters: Dec. 16

Director, Levy County Quilt Museum

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Dec. 10 at the Levy County Quilt Museum.  It was a busy day.  Quilting was done, as well as work on the Double Nine Patch.  The applications have been sent to the Florida State Fair, so far we have 20 quilts, crafts and what have you going down.  We have always done well down there.

We have been told that longtime quilter Goldie McHenry is at Haven Hospice in Chiefland. McHenry is 96 and has spent much of the last year receiving care down in Ocala.  Haven Hospice have been taking care of my son for over a year and he’s doing great.  It is not a place to go to die but to get well.  They do great things, and the staff and volunteers are the best.

We will not be having Ray Franks and the Can’t Hardly Play Boys out any more.  They have other plans and will be soon going back North.  We will miss them.

We still have spaces on the bus going to the Fair on Feb 15.  The cost is $23, and we will have passes for everyone.  For more information or to make reservations, call 352-493-2801.

Thursday lunch was great as always with rice and vegetables, broccoli, biscuits, cheese and macaroni, collards, macaroni salad, deviled eggs, sweet potato casserole, brownies, chocolate cake and so much more.

The Watermelon Quilt was on by Virginia Lewis, of Williston, and The Attic Windows Quilt was won by Vicky Van Dyke, of Trenton. Both quilts were featured in the recent quilt show at the museum.
