Quilts for Matthews House Hospice

Ten quilts, made by members of Quilting Corners Guild, were delivered on July 10th to  Matthews House Hospice in preparation for the grand opening of the new facility this Thursday. We had a sneak peek and were in awe of the wonderful building and grounds that will offer a variety of services to the local community.
