Quilt trail organizers speak at Landrum Garden Club meeting

Published 10:32pm Thursday, March 7, 2013

It was Valentines Day, Thursday, Feb. 14, when the Landrum Garden Club met at the home of Kathleen Culbreth.

Special guest speakers were Ellen Henderson and Kathleen Warmack from Heritage Upstate Quilt Trail.

Today, over 2,500 quilt blocks in 47 states can be found throughout the United States on homes, historic buildings, public buildings, destination venues and other business areas.  The city of Landrum is amoung the cities with Quilt Blocks. Landrum’s first quilt block, Cardinal Heritage, was hung in August 2012 at Landrum Middle School.  It was a gift from the Landrum Quilters. To learn more about this project at www.uhqt.org and Foothills Quilt Trail at www.foothillsquilttrail.com.

Before the meeting was over we had a surprise guest Doris Becknell, the daughter of the late Florine Strange.  Strange was a well loved and respected member of the Landrum Garden Club.

Doris warmed every members heart when she gave each of us a flower bulb from her Mother’s Garden.

The group discussed spring planting projects, established future birthday visits for our friends at Rosedale.  This project is planting seeds of love and caring.

The first group birthday party at Rosedale took place Wednesday, Feb. 27 hosted by Francine Costner and Linda Warren.

The March Meeting will be held at the home of Mrs. Joyce Prince.
