March 30

About 20 people volunteered their time to baste the 2016 quilt, Threads of Friendship, at the museum the morning of March 30. Afterward volunteers shared conversation and laughs over a potluck.

Nearly 40 quilters attended the Jan. 13 Cutting Day at the McHenry County Historical Society Museum – receiving detailed instructions from Arlen Bird and Sue Stanek on a nine-patch, Friendship Star set in a ribbon variation for 2017. The quilt uses cream and turkey red, and features 64 blocks. The 2017 quilt is dedicated to veteran quilter Holly Scott.
