Great news. Fox 6 in Birmingham with Fred Hunter came to Palisades Park in Oneonta, Alabama today where our guild meets each Tuesday and Thursday, plus 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month . We were so blessed that Fred is going to do an hour long special on interesting stories in Alabama. Our Guild, The Blount County Quilter’s Guild and the park where we have our cottage, Palisades Park will be on the special. Fred came today and filmed for several hours despite being up most of the night with tornado and storm warnings. Fred and his crew are awesome people. Very nice and we thank them very much. Here are some of the many pictures that were taken today. Be sure to watch the special on Fox 6 Christmas Day 6 to 7 pm. For those who will not pick it up I will link to it from their site if available. Mike Tucker was Fred’s photographer.. I took these pictures. Mike makes pictures a zillion times better than me.

Lord I hope I called the little one by the right name!! I have so much problems with remembering if it is Susannah or Savannah.. Either one…She is a doll!
Meet WARDEN Linda Wade and Eileen Cundiff. Linda is our leader and she takes it seriously. Some of us made the mistake of getting up to go to the restroom during a class project. We heard, “Where are you going?” When we told her we got “Shut up sit down and sew.” We have learned not to drink anything before and during quilting. Just kidding. Linda has taught us alot and done alot for us. We love her and believe it or not we made 4 quilt tops that day! Yes, cut and sewed together 4 complete tops. We were afraid not to!! We really wished everyone had a teacher like her! THANKS LINDA!
