Congratulations to Carol Sullivan and Janice Jones
Best Pictorial: Carol Sullivan – National Trails Day
Best Applique: Janice Jones – Apple Picking
These quilts are usually on display at the Mancuso World Quilt Festival.
It’s true: one will make terrific, long-lasting friends through quilting. Some of you met my daughter Laura when she was a young girl; when I brought her with me to a show or maybe to your home. She was very sick this past year and I’m glad I spent all my time with her, not quilting. I appreciate your thoughtfulness, kind words, and condolences at this difficult time. Thank you for your cards and gifts, they mean a lot to me.
Early this morning, I was informed that Marianne Nowacki’s daughter passed away. As many of you know, Laura had Batten Disease. She will be missed. Our hearts and prayers go out to Marianne.
I will post more information regarding any arrangements as I receive them.
