New Friends Quilt Circle in American Fork are
hosting a National Quilt Day event on Sat., March
16, 9 am to 4 pm, at the American Fork Senior Center
basement. Everyone is invited to a sew in!
We will be making a nine patch square called the
fake Log Cabin with the help of Carmen Martinez,
our Community Service leader. We are hoping everyone
will come and catch the spirit and make at
least one block to take home. (If you would like a
picture of this quilt I could text it to the phone of
your choice call me at 1 801 735 9677).
