Quilters deliver results of children's "Bee Creative" program

Recently representatives from the Fauquier County Quilters Guild delivered quilts to all three Fauquier County public libraries.

The quilts were constructed by guild members after they presented story times and quilting bees at all the library branches (Warrenton, Bealeton, and John Marshall) during the 2009 summer reading program. Children and their families designed and colored quilting squares, some based on favorite books or characters from books, and guild members pieced together the squares afterward.

The quilts will soon be hanging in the libraries, but in the mean time, see you can get an idea of what they look like: Warrenton Library, Bealeton Library, John Marshall Library.
