What are you most proud of? That I was able to do it for him. Also at the time I made this quilt, beginning in October, 2000, I was the Franklin County Extension Homemaker county president, and was asked to help with the state fair. I was fortunate (and thrilled) to help hang my winning quilt in the Best Of Show display after the judging.. Ida & Lorene were part of the Altus EH club and are shown in the photo "putting the quilt up" and getting ready for the hand quilting group to begin. Their quilting work proceeds were donated. Their frame was set up in the Altus Heritage Museum building in downtown Altus. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you need ties to begin a tie quilt try the local Good Will stores. I found most of my ties there in Ft Smith, AR. They have them by the box-full.
