Our quilt guild, the AuSable Quilt Guild of Grayling, Michigan, just completed a double-sided quilt with all the blocks from the book, The Quiltmakers Gift. Since there were 39 blocks in the book, our guild block, the Crossed Canoes pattern, was the 40th block and we put 20 - 12" blocks on each side. We presented the book and the quilt to the Deveriux Memorial Crawford County Museum in Grayling, MI, to celebrate their first anniversary. It is now hanging in the Children's section of the library and is a most colorful addition.
I read the story to the children and let them make their own quilt patch. They made a large quilt that we displayed in the hallway. The children were able to explore generosity and listen to a great story! – Marlena S., NY
