Thanks to BettyB and her group of quilting friends who hand quilted it. The Shreveport Times had an article on the quilt with a picture in today's paper (6/2/11). The festival is this Sat (6/4/11) in Gilliam if anyone is this area would like to come. I'll be working the children's art booth. Gilliam is off Hwy 71 north of Shreveport. Pictures are being attached ( hope).
