The Choo Choo Quilters had a table right in the center of the activities, with the clothesline quilts as the backdrop.

Our table showcased a variety of quilting items that you may recognize from past guild programs—embellished sweatshirts, improvisational piecing, charity quilts, Pointless Wonder star quilt and the "Chew, Chew with the Choo Choos" famous recipe book (it's a collector's item, ya know!).
Nancy explains the 4-patch and making charity quilts.
Visitors marveled at the work on display.
The guild's informational postcard, designed by Veronica, featured the stunning work of our guild members with full color photography of the 2014 Challenge Quilts.
