  • Log Cabin Quilters: April 7

    By WINNELLE HORNE
    Director, Quilt Museum
    The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, March 31, at the Levy County Quilt Museum.  The weather was bad for a while. The worst of it was to the north of us, yet we did get the much-needed rain.  A new quilt was put in the frame to be hand quilted.
    Greg and six boys were out Wednesday. They got a lot done. We have a lot of mums that were cleaned out if you want some. They planted another blueberry plant and cleared out around the sign in the front yard. Thanks Lancaster.
