Joyce Hardy, ‘one of our own’ gave us a demonstration of how to make a Puff Quilt. After the demonstration we were given several 5″ squares, hand sewing needles and thread to try for ourselves. Several puffs were made by those present and they will be made into a Linus Quilt. Maybe even a few quilts with all the puffs that were made.
A most informative and enjoyable evening.
