For several months, Ruth Guidroz and other Grand Bay Star Stitchers worked on piecing and quilting a Bow Tie Pattern quilt, 82" by 73", which fits a queen-sized bed.
The group, which meets at the Grand Bay Community Center at 12:15 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month, have also been selling opportunity tickets on the quilt as a way to raise funds for senior activities. And on Friday, February 13, they will draw the winning ticket. For more information on the quilt fundraiser or the quilters' meeting, call the Community Center, 865-4010 .
