Call for Quilt Blocks

Deep River County Park
9410 Old Lincoln Highway
Hobart, IN 46342

For 20+ years, The staff at Wood's Historic Grist Mill (located in Deep River County Park) have collected quilt blocks for an annual Friendship Quilt.

The 2008 Friendship Quilt block is titled, "Lotsa Potsa Flowers". Deadline is July 27, 2008. To obtain a pattern, just call 219.947.1958.

During the year, they display the completed Friendship Quilts in the Grist Mill. The collected blocks are sewn together creating the quilt top, sandwiched with batting, put on a large frame, and hand quilted by volunteers during monthly Quilting Bees.

I have participated in recent years. With the pattern, I make TWO blocks and submit the best one!! These are pictures of quilt blocks from past friendship quilts:

The "Goodie Jars in Grandma's Pantry" block. There were enough blocks submitted to create TWO quilts. 2004 & 2005.
