Quilting Bees meet

LARNED — Colleen Wolf welcomed members and guest Darby Eakin to the May 21 meeting of the guild at the First Presbyterian Church.  Announcement was made concerning the Barton County Fair contest featuring quilt blocks.  
The Pawnee County Fair Book quilting section was reviewed by the guild. The members voted to give the 2013 Open Class Grand Champion quilt a gift certificate of $30 and the 2013 4-H Grand Champion Constructed Garment a $20 Gift Certificate.  
Thank you notes were read from Beth Tatarko and Becky Crowder for a prayer quilt for Beth along with a monetary gift which will be used to buy batting.
The prayer quilt ministry has produced about 400 tied quilts in five years.
The fat quarter drawing of flowers was won by Merlene Baird. The Quilter’s Celebration on June 22 will feature door prizes from area quilt shops in addition to presentations, a peddler’s corner, an opportunity quilt, refreshments and lunch.  For additional information contact the church at 285-6033.
