Library Quilt underway!

I have been asked to help construct a quilt to benefit the Whitehall Public Library as well as celebrate its 50th Anniversary! Plans are already underway and we are excited to get to work. But we can't do too much until we know what books will be featured on the quilt. The quilt has been designed and we have a list of books, so far, but want to make sure people are aware of this project and let them know they have the opportunity to get their favorite book represented on the quilt, too!

The actual quilt will be a book shelf/shelves with 50 adult titles and 50 children's titles. It will hang in the Whitehall Library and be displayed with a companion book that will feature the names of the people who chose the books and their reasons for their choice.

We have a lot of special details planned for the quilt so it will definitely be something to see when it is finished. The deadline to get your book choice in is August 31st, 2012 so we will have enough time to construct it and have it ready for unveiling in the spring of 2013.

Feel free to contact me via email for more information:

Update on QOV quilt on eBay

This is the email I just received from the maker of the Quilt of Valor quilt currently being auctioned on eBay:

Sue: thanks for the note, and yes I'm the quiltmaker and am fully aware of the eBay auction. Both June Moore and Catherine Roberts are "on it" in an attempt to prevent the sale. I've heard from a number of people, and its gratifying to know the QOVers are being so supportive and share my feelings.

Special thanks to AT for tracking down the maker and getting contact information for me. I would love to name you but not without your permission!
