Over a dozen Pettisville volunteers have given their time to create the 2014 Friendship Days Quilt, a fundraising project for their community park. Mindy Borer, this year’s Quilt Chairman, is hoping a dozen more quilters come forward to help move their project along
The Friendship Days Quilt is made from a collection of hand dyed batiks, pieced by Mindy Borer and marked by CaraLou Grieser and Karen Nafziger. It measures 95” x 110” and the quilt pattern is called “Swoon”. The plans are to raffle the quilt at the Pettisville Park, during the auction held for the park’s benefit. This summer’s festival runs June 27-29 and a list of events can be found at www.FriendshipDays.org.
The quilting process, taking place at Marilyn’s Beauty Shop on county rd. 19, just south of Pettisville, is open Monday through Saturday from 8am to 8pm. Photos of the quilting are available on the Friendship Days Facebook page and on the festival website. If you’d like to volunteer, you can email Mindy@FriendshipDays.org.
