Description

The Mountain Laurel Quilters, a specialty club of the Laurel County Homemakers, received a generous grant from KFW in 2010, to build quilt racks to be able to hold a Quilt Gathering, displaying the awesome quilts crafted by women in the region.A second objective was to raise money for the Laurel County KY Chapter of Project Linus at the quilt show. 

To date, this chapter has donated 1843 blankets to sick, injured and abused children in the surrounding 11 county area, through the generosity of the Mountain Laurel Quilters.
