How did you celebrate National Quilt Day on March 17th?

A group of Pieces and Patches Quilt Guild members met at Country Stitches for the School Bell Sew Day  to learn some new techniques, share project ideas and to celebrate the National Quilt Day.  Special thanks to Elizabeth Hewett, Marj Hobe, Connie Kress and Cheri Pickett for sharing their time, expertise and skills to show the group how to color quilt blocks, make silk ribbon roses and learn new ways to make bias binding.  

April Koenig said" Thank you for organizing and giving us helpful hints.  It was a great day of learning and fun!
