Here’s a cheer for all our wonderful quilters, whose work stars in the festival auction. Special thanks to those who attended the quilting bees this summer, working on a king-sized quilt pieced at the West Coast MCC Center. Work on the quilt continued at Hope Village in Canby, where Frank Howard worked out that it contains approximately 65,000 stitches!
