    Lou Ann Watt, formerly of Limestone, displays the queen-sized quilt she created and is donated to benefit the Robert A. Frost Memorial Library expansion project. The homemade quilt and  a quilt rack crafted by Robert Schrum, also of Limestone, will be raffled off through the purchase of tickets.

    Watt was a teacher in the Limestone achool system for more than 25 years retiring in 1992. She and her husband, Albert Watt, moved to Cross Lake in 1994, and she started taking quilting classes through the Fort Kent Adult Education program with instructor Nat Pelletier.  
    Watt is a member of the Northern Neighbors Quilters Guild, formed in 2002, and is also a member of the Acadian Quilters in Madawaska. The talented quilter donates many of her quilts to charitable organizations including the Ronald McDonald House in Portland and Project Linus. The quilting in this particular creation was done by Edith Rideout of Mattawamkeg, using a loops and more loops pattern.
    Robert Schrum, also a Limestone resident and library building committee vice chairman, has generously made and donated a quilt rack to be raffled along with the with watt’squilt.  
    Tickets are available at the Robert A. Frost Library, as well as through members of the Library Expansion Focus Committee and Friends of the Library. Tickets prices are $1 each or $5 for a book of seven.
