What it's all about

When Ann, a long-time member of Little Quilt's Prairie Women Sewing Circle, passed away recently, her husband brought in the last quilt she had been hand quilting and asked if we could finish it for him. So, we hosted an old-time quilting bee!   All Ann's friends from the Prairie Women club spent the day finishing the quilt and sharing memories of Ann.  There's one thing we knew for certain - Ann would have loved the idea of a quilting bee!  Everyone was so happy to be able to finish the quilt for such a dear friend and we know her family will enjoy the "warm hugs" from Ann they receive every time they use the quilt.  Ann's husband will be taking the finished quilt to North Carolina where he's moving to be closer to family.
