2011 Challenge Quilts......REVEALED

Welcome to our Annual
Quilters Holiday Luncheon

We are setting the table for lunch
and displaying previous challenge quilts
from past years...

Hanging on the walls are Challenge Quilts
from 2006 to 2010

This is our 6th year creating Challenge Quilts!

It's FUN to get them out and look at them again.

Frieda made these TREE Napkins for the table...

This starts out as a circle....
and folds into a Tree

The Harlan Valley Quilters would like to give a warm THANK YOU
to the Chapel of the Valley here in Harlan.
We have met here every Monday for the last 8 years.
The church has donated their fellowship hall and all of their facilities to us so that we can create Comfort Quilts for the Harlan Community.
We appreciate the time we have spent here, the classes we have had, sharing quilting information and bonding with fellow members.

In January please join us at our new location:
The Harlan Community Hall
The hall has recently been remodeled and is our new home.
Join us Monday, January 2, 2012
to create Comfort Quilts
Everyone is Welcome!

Our Comfort Quilts and Raffle Quilts are created with donated Fabrics, Battings and Threads.
If you would like to donate cotton fabrics or other materials to this worthy cause, please contact LuAnn Kessi

Everything is Better when it is Quilted,
The Harlan Valley Quilters
