The Start of a Classic

Hello Everyone,
Last Tuesday, twelve of us gathered in the classroom at Independence Hall in Arnold and started making my Country Courthouse pattern.  The Independence Hall Quilt Guild is going to offer this quilt as our Scholarship Quilt for 2021.

Everyone is still smiling after a long day of cutting and stitching.

Our goal was to get a good start on making (401) 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" nine patch sections for the blocks.

We all had our homework assignment to make about 35, then we will exchange 9-patches in a couple of weeks and start making blocks.

I brought in a lot of fabric, and the girls got busy making strip sets.

All proceeds from ticket sales will go to graduating seniors from Bret Harte High School for their continuing education.  Students have to apply, and go through an interview process before the scholarships are awarded.
This finished quilt is our goal over the next few months.  I will let you know when tickets become available for this 81" x81" heirloom quilt. 

Have a great quilting weekend!



  1. What a fun day you all must have had. Hooray, your blog site is back in action for me!

    1. I'm so glad Fran. Several people contacted me to find out what was going on with Blogger. I was absolutely clueless. --Lynn

  2. Oh that is going to be gorgeous! And such a neat fundraiser. Always jealous of group sewing time--looks so fun!

  3. The only problem I see sewing with a group is that the time just flies by too quickly! --Lynn

  4. Beautiful quilt! Fabulous cause!

    1. Thank you Susie. Yes, it's a great cause. The guild also make a quilt for each of the scholarship recipients. --Lynn
