End of the year meeting June 16, 2016

Our our last meeting of the season was held on June 16, 2016. Our year long project of making quilts for Parkinson's patients came to a productive end. We were able to give Sue Pelchat, who runs the Parkinson's Support Group here in Torrington 25 quilts. The first quilt our group made was given to the husband of Betty Ann Poll, Hearthside member. She was the one who brought the idea forward to making quilts for this charity. We had a wide variety of quilts made by our members and the effort was very successful. Also happening at the meeting was the Block of the Month challenge. The two winners were Betty Ann Poll and Jackie Howe. There were several beautiful quilts made by members all making them with their own colors and style. Another fun challenge for the group. 

Quilts below are some of the Parkinson's Quilts. Sue Pelchat came to accept the quilts we made for the group to distribute to patients. She is pictured below.
