Laurentian Foothills Update

Laurentian Foothills
Mary Pal submitted an article to the SAQA Journal describing the process of creating our group quilt, and it has been published in the Fall issue.  You can read it online by going to SAQA-U and after you have signed in, at the bottom of the left-hand side menu, you will see "SAQA Journal - Back Issues."  Or you can wait for the hard copy, sure to be in your mailboxes very soon.

If you missed the full story, go back in our Archives to the Feb. 21 post.

Our fame is spreading.  Bethany Garner noted that Ellen Lindner's blog has a discussion of fractured quilts and ours is one of the examples she cites.
