This is the Newsletter of the Hands of Friendship Quilt Guild of Kirksville, Missouri.

The HOF Quilt guild was treated to a wonderful program by Tim Tucker. Tim showed a number of quilts that had belonged to his mother, Trevia. Several of our members knew Trevia and shared stories of her with Tim and the guild.

Some of the quilts were family pieces and others were ones she particularly liked. Many were purchased while on trips to various parts of the country, particularly California.  Andrea O’Brien read the background of the quilts as they were held up by Tim and Alice Allinson.  The hand quilting on many of them was beautiful. The extremely tiny stitches and the “number of stitches to the inch” was a part of the story of these lovely quilts.
