Small Town Quilt Guild

Members of the Small Town Quilt Guild of Seymour conducted their May meeting at the Seymour Community Center, 107 S. Chestnut St.

President Diane Isaacs conducted the business meeting.

Most of the meeting was devoted to discussing the guild’s event at 7 p.m. June 30 at Jackson Lodge 146 Free and Accepted Masons, 1818 N. Ewing St., Seymour.

Members have been invited to participate in a quilt challenge, which is following the Indiana bicentennial theme. Participants may make a 24-inch-by-24-inch quilt reflecting something about Jackson County such as buildings, people, events, schools, farm life and industry. These will be on display for the June event.

The quilt program topic will be “Bed Turning,” which involves layering many quilts onto a bed and revealing each one in turn with some description and/or history told for each quilt.

Each person planning to attend is asked to bring at least two quilts — an old or antique quilt and a newer or current quilt — if possible. A basket raffle is being planned.

A show-and-tell session was conducted during the meeting, which allowed members to talk about quilts they gave completed in recent months.
