Quilting Group

The ladies of the St. Benedict Quilting Group are busy at work piecing another beautiful quilt to raise funds for St. Benedict.  

The plan is to have it completed and on display before the holiday season.  

It’s always fun for us to design the quilt and we hope it will bring interest to raise funds for our much needed parish goals.  

More pictures to come as the construction of the quilt progresses!

Thank You Seamstresses
