Speaking of GFWC, my vintage tablecloths were a hit at the Zion Woman's Club meeting on Tuesday.
The annual AAUW Fellows Luncheon was Saturday, a joint meeting of the Waukegan Area and Deerfield branches. Three of these women have AAUW doctoral grants ($20K) at University of Illinois-Chicago (biology), University of Chicago (ethnomusicology), religious studies (Northwestern). One has a Selected Professions Grant at the Kellogg School of Business at Northwestern. They talked about their research and their career plans. It is wonderful to meet and hear from the recipients of our fundraising efforts.
The women are standing in front of Scrappy Pinwheels, the spring raffle quilt. Ticket sales were $200. We'll sell tickets and have the drawing at the AAUW-IL convention at the end of April
Barb J. did a beautiful job quilting Twinkle Stars, which was another flimsy from December, and Midnight Stars, which I assembled in January. I bound and labeled both.

Twinkle and Midnight are my contributions to the ALA Biblioquilters silent auction at the ALA Annual Conference.
I'm linking up with
