SCHOLARSHIPS AND LOG CABINS
Each year the Trinity Valley Quilter’s Guild awards at least one $2,500 scholarship, and if enough funds were raised, a second one in that amount as well. Funds are raised through a Small Quilt Auction at the annual TVQG Quilt Show. Each little charming quilt is made by a guild member, then donated to raise money for this worthy cause.
This year, I am the chairperson of the TVQG Scholarship Committee that handles the distribution and collection of scholarship applications, then evaluation of the candidates to determine the award(s) . The Committee (me plus Teri B., Madge H., and Katy K.) held our first meeting yesterday and we are getting everything in order to post the guidelines and application form on the guild website so stay tuned. It’s exciting to be a part of this endeavor to assist someone in the pursuit of their education.
Block number 7 of Brackman’s Civil War Quilt is the Log Cabin. A little easier than some of the others thus far, I’m not sure I like my fabric choices and may make another. However, this is the one I have finished.
Since this one is so easy, I don’t mind making a second one. Several of the pieces in this one are from Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Reunion fabric line.
