I have been a member of the American Quilt Study Group since 1985. One of the great perks of membership is the newsletter, “Blanket Statements”. Back in early October, Hallie Bond announced that they would be doing a special edition featuring stories in "times of illness and stress". I sent her a link to my final post about “our” Community Supper quilt (here) and it was chosen for publication. This quilt belongs to all 79 of you who participated!
