MTS Meets Carol Woods

The Mountains to Sea Quilt Series has been on display for the last two weeks at Carol Woods Retirement Facility in Chapel Hill. This afternoon, Carol Woods residents had the pleasure of listening to resident Jonathon Howes' stories about the sites along the trail that are depicted on  our Mountain to Sea quilts. He was Secretary to the N C Department of Environment, Health and Natural Resources under Governor Hunt's administration. The display has been met with enthusiasm, many residents visited it, often repeatedly.

Spring 2013 (Ravelry) UFO Club - The Results

The Spring 2013 UFO Club is now CLOSED. Any interested quilters with 5 (or more) UFOs were required to sign up by Midnight (EDT) on April 7, 2013. All qualifying UFOs were completed by Midnight (EDT) on June 30, 2013.
We had a relatively small group of quilters for the Spring 2013 (Ravelry) UFO Club.  Our membership was down this session and we had very few finished projects.  I believe that it was the smallest return for the Club since the formation of the group.  The good news is that a number of other members made progress on their projects (and that is the important part!)
Group stats can be seen below:
Membership: (14)
NO SEND: (10)
thepoch: 2 completed projects
SEND: (4)
andimc13: 1 completed project
bowie: 1 completed project
Session Totals: 3 quilters completed 4 projects.  Congrats! to our finishers and better luck next time to those members who didn't quite attain a finish.  Hope to see YOU back for another round of Finishing Fun!
