  • Log Cabin Quilters for Oct. 20

    The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Oct 13, at the Levy County Quilt Museum. Our Bible Quilt is getting off to a great start. We have had 11 squares completed so far and we’ll need another 30 or more before we can start to assemble the quilt. If we have more squares than we need for the quilt, we’ll make pillows with those squares. The quilt will be very colorful with the bright colors that are being used.
    We still have many craft magazines and if you need any, they are free. We have so much donated to us and we enjoy sharing with others.
