The Hands All Around quilt group was established in 1982. There are 24 members who meet once a month. I have been a member since 1991. Each month a member passes out pieces (maximum of 50 pieces) for a square of her choice to be assembled. Once every 24 months, the group pieces my squares and I have all the blocks needed to assemble a quilt. This is a wonderful way to realize a quilt without the repetition of piecing identical square after square. The member receiving her quilt squares is the hostess for that month.

The Library Quilt (below) was created for the Northville District Library as a gift to the community in commemoration of the new facility. The 130 books in the quilt's design contain the names of donors who contributed a minimum of $75. to the project. The $11,375. raised by selling 'names on books,' went toward construction of the new building.
The quilt pattern was designed by Ruth Heyer of California as a fund-raiser for libraries and schools. Hands All Around donated the fabric, their time and talent to this project. Northville Stitching Post donated their meticulous embroidery services.
On an important matter . . . The Lost Quilt Come Home Page is a place to display and view lost or stolen quilts, and to supplying information on how to protect the quilts we currently own.
