Hospital Quilt

Blue Mountain Hospital requested that Grayson Country Quilters create a quilt that would be hung in the lobby of the hospital that opened about two years ago.

Deb Bayles and Cathy Cosby headed up the committee to create the quilt.  Members sewed together individual blocks and Deb and Cathy pieced it together.  Jeri Montella completed the long arm quilting.
