Come to the Quilting Bee

Come quilt with us!

Come to our Quilting Bee!

We will be making a quilt for the Union. As you know our troops have been fighting for a long time and they need something to keep them warm. The military told us to make quilts seven feet by four feet, the right size for a cot bedding. Bring the quilts you have now. We might have to cut them into smaller quilts and hem them. Please be aware you probably won't get the quilts back.
