GOTTA HAND IT TO THESE QUILTERS

Ironically, all of the current Senior Center Hand Quilters picked up the hobby later in life.

Gretta Shoenemann, in her mid-90s, picked up quilting about 20 years ago. She said they did a lot of hand work as a child, but quilting was not one of them. She started quilting after her husband passed away in 2001.

Claude Jones, a regular senior center quilter, began quilting after she retired in 2005.

Each individual stitch is hand-done through every layer, making the back of the quilt design almost as beautiful as the front, according to the quilters.

Most quilts today are done with quilting machi...
