Quilt Club Editor, The Detroit News

For the past few weeks you have probably had little or no time to sew on your quilts and probably haven’t even looked at your basket of odds and ends of material. So what could be a better time to organize these then right away while the year is new and fresh and those resolutions, which never last long are still in one piece.
Resolve to use up every bit of material, for it can be done to great advantage, as is shown by the rugs in the accompanying illustration.

At the top is a hooked rug which was made by Mrs. Margaret Mowatt, 9331 Hartwell Avenue. Mrs. Mowatt makes one rug right after another and makes every scrap of material do its bit towards making her home more beautiful.
The rug is made of wool and silk pieces. The background is black and the design is in aquamarine, beige, green, gold, and peach.

Sometimes Mrs. Mowatt buys the foundation rug with stamped pattern, but often creates her own designs. If she wished to make a rug with a leaf design, she would simply take a large maple or oak leaf and…

… to get to Detroit. Perhaps, some time she will be able to be with us and that will make us all very happy, I am sure.
Mrs. L Richards, has moved to Galesburg, Mich. And sent us a letter the other day. She writes to thank all of the many friends who sent cards to her and did not receive any in return. She was in the midst of her mailing list when she was suddenly called to Ohio because of illness, so she cannot remember to whom she did send cards. So if she has missed any of her Quilt Club friends, she wishes to offer them her best wishes for the New Years now.

She has not written to the Corner for some time, but always reads the news of the club’s activities and still exchanges patches with quite a few members. She moved from Detroit in October and likes Galesburg very much, though, of course, it is quilt a change from busy, bustling Detroit.
