This is a Community Project, so even if you aren’t making a barn quilt of your own, please feel free to stop in and work on a section. Anyone already signed up for the session is welcome to work on the quilt.

The pattern is to be determined. We are in the idea process for the design, and open to suggestions. The size will be 3’x3′ or a 4’x4′ and hang on the left side of the library (new parking lot side).
