The Grange has donated the use their building for a couple of our group's quilt shows. One show was held to raise money for a young girl's liver transplant-we raised $36,000. This year, we raised almost $8,000 for American Hero Quilts. (Not bad for our group of about 12 women!) The Grange has done lots of other things for the community, including a scholarship fund, supplying dictionaries to needy students, blood drives, food bank donations, and purchasing wheelchairs for people in developing nations.
Here's Nan's appliqued version of the grange building... only thing missing is the billygoat who frequently wanders in.
Terry added yo yo centers to her dresden plate blocks.
and Helen's row is actually 4 rows- scrappy zig zags, applique, and pieced black and cream strips that we loved so much, we had her make more to help unify our collection of strips.
