Since 1995, members of the Piney Hills Quilt Guild have worked hand in hand, and needle by thread, to make a unique quilt to be raffled off at the Louisiana Peach Festival.
Charter member Irene Taylor said it all got started by the Women of Grace — members of Grace United Methodist Church — who held a quilt show as a fundraiser.
