Water Street in Decatur. The group puts on a Quilt Fest every year and this year was the 30th year for the event. Member Pat Parr showed several quilts, one of which she used an embroidery machine to create houses on the blocks of the quilt. The fabrics used were in shades of forest green, brown and gold. Parr has made two quilts in varying colors for her daughter and son. Susan Martin of Mt. Zion. another member showed several designs including a kaleidoscope pattern. One quilt had diamond shaped pieces in the shade of each birthstone month. Martin said two months were a challenge the birthstone for October is turquoise so she dyed the fabric to get a blue green color. April which has the birthstone diamond was difficult so she applied glitter to achieve the diamond effect. Martin prok, ides the quilts that decorate the library near the newspaper rack.
