Our 2016 quilt was designed by Melody Peters, Lola Stamey, and Mona Wooden, inspired by a Fons and Porter magazine article on Linda Ballard. It is composed of a center applique plus 24 public domain blocks made by Foothill Guild members with the same pattern and the cherry fabric, to which they added their own red, white, and blue fabrics. The center was designed by Melody and Lana LaPlante and appliquéd by Lana. It was beautifully quilted by Beth Foust.
