Question...I love the Palace, but how did it come to be? I'd love to organize something like it for my guild. Would you be willing to share its story?

We have a second residence that we no longer rent out. Rather than leave it empty, we decided to invite the Harlan Quilters to come and use it. We create charity quilts for our community, as well as personal projects. We also donate a raffle quilt each year to the Women's Cancer coalition. In the past 10 years we have worked in the local church and then the local grange hall. When we started working in this house we felt like it was a Palace, compared to the other places we have been, so everyone began calling it the Quilt Palace.

My Best To You,
LuAnn in Oregon

Thank you for the tutorial on the feed bags. I have a dozen or so dog food bags, chicken feed bags and maybe even a cat food bag in there some where to make totes from. I'm going to get started on those today. (Then maybe my daughter will let up on me about keeping all those bags around! ;))
