The Sit and Chat Wednesday Quilters of Friendship Commons won the People’s Choice Ribbon and First Place Ribbon in the Cultural Arts Division for the “Butterflies are Free” hand stitched and appliquéd quilt at the Washburn County Fair recently. Design, stitching and overall supervision were made possible by Master Quilter Myrna Atkinson. The dedicated quilters included Myra Atkinson, Mariah Brinken, Carol Hubin, Mary Olsen and Mary Raehsler.

The quilters met weekly for a whole year to complete the cultural art winner. The quilt will be sold by Happy Tonics, Inc. to support the nonprofit and the Monarch Butterfly Habitat.

Visit Happy Tonics at 25 Fifth Avenue, Shell Lake, Wisconsin to see the quilt at the Grand Opening event on August 3, 2010.
