Levy County Quilt Museum

   The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, May 18th at the Levy County Quilt Museum.  Janie who is almost finished with the quilt in the frame spent time looking for the next quilt top.  She found a My Grandmother’s Fan top that might be the one.  Saturday, we found two watermelon log cabin tops that just might make her change her mind.  The quilters had requested a log cabin top but we just haven’t had a chance to make one.  The two tops we found are of a throw and maybe a twin.  We’ll find out next Thursday.
     We are termite free now.  The odor was about the same as when your house is treated inside.  We were very lucky with only two places where the termites had been and neither were very serious.  Thanks, Wesley of Hunt’s Pest Control for taking care of us so quickly.
    John and the guys from Lancaster were out.  This was John’s first time out and was amazed at all the work that had been done by Lancaster.  The two paintings of the Log Cabin building are almost done.  They need to be sealed several times then out to the signs on Alt 27.  Thanks of Lancaster for helping us care for the Museum.
     Thanks to Toni for reminding me that the Museum is now 20 years old.  It’s hard to believe that we’ve been here that long and the volunteers have been in charge of the Museum for 5 years.  We’ll plan a celebration later in the year.
     This was also a great week for donations.  We have books and magazines on scrapbooking, card making and knitting and an old sewing machine.  Thanks everyone for thinking of us.
      Our next projects will take time which will give us a change to regroup and be ready to spend again. We need to weather seal the parts of the building that get most of the weather.  Then our big and most time consuming project will be the floor which be the most expensive.  The guys from Lancaster are out about 5-6 hours a week so things will go slowly and be done over a year or so.  All this is part of being 20 years old and this first we’ve had to spend on building.  The heating and air have been done, several appliances have been replaced and we are doing OK and have plans to be around for many more years.

Log Cabin Quilters

  We meet every Thursday morning at the Museum.   Ladies work on handquilting in the frame, working on their own projects or projects for the Club to help raise funds for the Museum.   We occasionally have classes for small groups.  We prefer to teach one on one.   The volunteers are happy to share their knowledge.  Call or email for more information.  

   We are very happy to accept donations of fabric, including scraps and unfinished projects, books or any craft items.  These donations help us keep the Museum open.
   We enjoy a potluck lunch every Thursday, so stop by with a covered dish and join us for lunch
