Adult Center - March 2014
“Hoppy Spring”, everybody! For your viewing pleasure, Thumb Butte Quilters present a collection of Spring quilts to tickle your fancy. Spring is here, although it hardly seems like we've had a winter. Hopefully, this collection will get you outside for a walk in our delightful Spring weather!
