Quilt Warmth from Quality Workers

My 2007 Hickman County Quilt Show Book was delivered recently. I had not had a chance to look at it until last night, but my wife and I enjoyed looking at the art in the work and all the family history literally woven into those quilt’s fabric. The pride in workmanship and the intelligence in design created by Hickman Countians in those quilts not just in the past but also in new works are skillfully documented in this book. I applaud the Hickman County Quilt Committee with support from the Hickman County Chamber of Commerce for their work in publishing this entertaining showcase of the work of area quilters.
