This year’s special children’s feature was to “make a frog”. The children’s frog will be made into a crib quilt. In spring the quilts will be placed on display in the Wautoma Public Library and again at next year’s quilt show. Eventually the quilts will be given to Social Services. Robin Burrows, a visitor from Texas, was the  recipient of the raffle quilt.

The Pine Tree Needlers had a boutique where members sold items they had made throughout the year.


Plans are already under way for next year’s quilt show on Aug. 10. They meet the fourth Wednesday of every month at 9 am at the Mountain View Community Center, in Mt. Morris. For additional information about the annual quilt show and quilt activities please contact Karen Pica, 920-787-4455.
