First United Methodist Church of Arroyo Grande


Quilt Trunk Show
June 14, 2008

The sanctuary was lined up one side and down the other with quilts from Sandy Underwood's collection. On the screen at the front was a continuously playing slide show of quilting escapades and trips Sandy had taken with friends and family. A luncheon was served in Criswell Hall. Also in Criswell Hall was a quilting demonstration. The event raised about $1500 for the United Methodist Women's contribution to world and local missions.

Over 60 quilts adorned the sanctuary.

Carleen Minckler donated a traditional Amish feather heart pattern, hand-quilted quilt. And the Sew 'n' Sews (quilting group) donated a 1930s Carpenter's Wheel quilt to the cause as well. (Neither are pictured here.)

The Sew 'n' Sews raise additional monies for mission by finishing quilts, usually presented as "tops only".

A slide show played continuously depicting Sandy's quilting activities.
