    The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, May 10, at the Levy County Quilt Museum. A lot of the members were away with doctor visits, vacations and whatever. We’re hoping everyone will be back with us next week.
    Greg and six boys were out and boy did they get a lot of work done. The porch looks terrific after they cleaned and got rid of some of the old spools that were beginning to show their age. Thanks Lancaster.
