Greetings Quilters!:  Once, I had an opportunity to take a class with Jean Ray Laury, which included two days of classes, Frank cooking dinner for us all and a good night’s sleep under one of Jean’s quilts. Needless to say, I thought that I’d died and gone to Heaven! One of the things I’ll always remember, besides their gracious hospitality, was Jean’s comment about the important role that fiber plays in our lives. From the moment we are born, we are surrounded and protected by cloth!
