'Tis the season of giving! The Community Emergency Fund is prepared to give where needed any time of the year. When we celebrated the Festival of Lights, the Community Emergency Fund chose the winner of the quilt that the community quilted at the quilting bees held throughout the year. Congratulations to the winner of this lovely quilt!

The quilt was green, burgundy, and white (very appropriate for the season) sewn together to make the Lone Star pattern. As we quilted the quilt these past months, I wondered what fabric we could use to bind the outside edge. The top had been purchased quite a few years ago, and there were no scraps from its construction. As the completion neared, I looked among my green fabric to try to find something that would blend with the quilt. Just as I was about to give up, I turned around and there I saw it! Lying on the very top of a small stack of green fabric was the exact print that the unknown quilter had used in the making of the top!!! I did not recall ever having that piece of fabric. The only explanation I could come up with was that the Fabric Fairy must have placed it there. If that be the case, I have a few more small chores for her.

Remembering Enola--It is with great sadness that we note the passing of Enola Gish, the founder of The Maple Leaf Quilt Show.
