My daughter who lives in Fort Scott, KS sent me this wonderful news piece. I have provided it below for you to consider in your own community. What a magical display will this be! Thanks Jody!
The Airing of the Quilts
What a festive sight in historic Fort Scott all of March, recreating a long time tradition bringing winter bedding outside to bask in the sunshine and catch the fresh breezes welcoming springtime to the Prairie. Celebrate Women's History Month with Voices from the Quilts. Toss quilts over balconies, banisters, fences & clothes lines to tell our story from the Voices from the Quilts!
The entire month of March centers around the Fort Scott National Historic Site bringing Civil War Quilts and memorabilia for all to appreciate and admire: "Reflections on the War: Women and their Civil War Quilts" The Sutler of Fort Scott has contributed authentic Civil War sewing tools and accessories to be on display all month.
See Quilts telling the stories of local families at Lyons Twin Mansions daily and free of charge. Downtown shoppes have their windows and walls full of quilts. Window shopping is a delightful experience in historic Fort Scott . . just like in the olden days! Come on downtown and experience the magic!

Here's a fun quiz at About.com. See how many quilt blocks you recognize! Don't recognize any? That's okay because now you can learn their names!
Share your score here and we'll see who got the highest one!
Hello Everyone! The weather here in Georgia was spectacular on Saturday this past weekend, and I spent it in the house attempting to keep the flu from invading my personna! It really stunk, but I sure got alot of quilting done!
I've been busy working on Comforting Quilters and have a special surprise for all of our gals for our next meeting in March. I'll be sure to post some photos of the meeting and give updates on the progress of our quilting ventures.

Being ill has not allowed me to surf the blogs for anything of interest. However, I did find a very nice fabric bag that I really liked! You can see it on the news feed to the left of my blog.
All for now, but keep posted, the newsletter is almost complete and I'll be posting more photos of our projects.
