OUR QUILTS ARE HANGING IN THE BIG SHOW!
Please come out to the Chicago Quilt Festival and see our quilts hanging in the show.  Catherine and Cheryl worked hard to get this together, and for many of our members this is the first time their quilt has ever been in a major quilt show!  We are so proud of our group and all of your work, so come on out to the show and see it!
