This year we are delighted to be showing quilts from the collection of Claudia Picard, who has been collecting quilts almost her entire life.  She vividly remembers her grandmother’s home where her grandmother and friends were quilting in an upstairs room once a week.  She has collected old quilts and new quilts and has made quilts herself.  She has graciously agreed to let us display many of her quilts at St. Marks.

Claudia has many red and white quilts.

Janet Kilgore, who is organizing the event in Honey Grove this year, says:  “The colors and designs of these quilts are wonderful.  St. Marks will be ablaze in color.  We can’t wait to show off the historic church and these beautiful quilts to Quilt Hop visitors.”

The Friends of the Honey Grove Library sponsors the Quilt Hop stop at St. Marks each year.  The Friends manage the church, which is used for various community functions during the year and is available to rent for weddings.
