Quilting at Deep River County Park

I found this info in the Quilting at Wood's Mill section of the Lake Co Parks, Hobart, Indiana -- web site:

Quilting Bees

Deep River County Park in Wood’s Historic Grist Mill

Fourth Sundays in 2010:
Sunday, May 23, June 27, July 25

1-4 p.m.


Volunteer quilters meet each month to demonstrate their talents. Lively conversation, greeting of old friends, and exchange of information accompanies the quilting. Quilters are working on “Lotsa Potsa Flowers”, the latest quilt to be assembled from blocks donated by many friends. As soon as that one is completed, the new Friendship Star will be put into the frame.

On exhibit is the recently-completed Indiana Puzzle quilt, which was done in traditional red and white. Many other quilts completed at the park since 1979 will also be displayed. Stop by to meet these talented volunteers and join them in quilting? You will have an enjoyable time and help us complete our quilt.

Assembly of Friendship Star Quilt: Donated blocks of the blue and yellow Friendship Star have been received and ready to assemble into the 2010 quilt top and be quilted during the Quilting Bees each month May through October. Join us on Thursdays, April 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29 from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. for the assembly. Meet downstairs in the Visitor Center at Deep River County Park. Bring a sack lunch and a drink. For more information call 219-947-1958.

New quilt block: We are asking for blocks for the next quilt, “Honey Bee”. The pattern and a sample will be available during Maple Syrup Time and in Wood’s Mill beginning May 1. If you do not have the right fabric, packets of fabric sufficient to make the block will be available for purchase. The deadline to return one or more completed blocks is Sunday, October 24 at 4 p.m.
