BLACKBERRY TOWNSHIP – “Quilts and Casseroles” will be the theme for a fall event hosted by Faith Baptist Women at 11 a.m. Nov. 9 at Faith Baptist Church, 1S455 S. Mill Creek Drive in Blackberry Township in the Mill Creek subdivision.
Members of the church are bringing about two dozen quilts to be shown to those attending, said member Deb Cadle of Batavia, some as wall hangings and others as full-sized quilts.
Carol Priebe of Sugar Grove will talk about some of the quilts she has made and techniques of assembling them.
Teri Grommes of North Aurora will do a slide presentation of quilt patterns and pictures of quilts.
Cadle said after the quilt presentations, attendees are invited to stay for a hot casserole lunch.
There is no charge to attend, but a freewill offering will be accepted, she said.
This year is reservation only, so those preparing casseroles will know how much to make. To make a reservation, call Jeanne at 630-879-5370.
“We have a spring and a fall luncheon,” Cadle said. “We wanted to do something different, so we thought of the quilts and idea of casseroles – it’s something put together of other pieces that seem to fit together.”
Featured casseroles also will have printed copies of the recipes, so those who
attend can take a recipe home of their favorites, Cadle said.
