    A wonderful day at the New England Quilt Museum at the Garden Party for the 25th Anniversary. The presentation about “Why Quilts Matter” was outstanding and makes a quilter proud to be involved in this process. A truly was to feel the kinship with other quilters.

    Thanks to all who arranged a wonderful afternoon.
