The quilters then met again, cut up the quilts into pieces, mixed up the pieces and sewed them back together! The result is what is called a “fractured quilt”, said Nancy Derheimer, quilter.Featured Artists include, JoAnn Baldwin, Dottie Bilbrey, Rose M. Colllins, Kathy Denny, Nancy Derheimer, Judy Glore, Rita Hellmich, Donna Hermesch, Nancy King, Sue Koors, Janet Meyer, Alice Rust, Jean Schoettmer, Jean Shultz, Jan Wantz, Susan Wilson, and Alice Woodhull.

But Demba Ba’s deadline-day decision to stay with the Blues forced a rethink and Everton beat West Ham and West Brom to the signing of the 20-year-old, who transformed the match with his arrival at half-time. “It was frustrating when he scored. I’d been talking to Chelsea all summer – will he move, won’t he. I was told no, no, no,” Hammers boss Allardyce said. “Then Ba decided to stay and there was a quick shift around with a few hours to go and Everton got there before us and West Brom. That’s the way the cookie crumbles.” Allardyce disagreed with the dismissal of Mark Noble for two yellow cards, the second coming shortly after he had converted a penalty and moments before Baines fired his second equaliser. Choosing his words with care, Allardyce indicated that he felt referee Lee Mason had endured a poor afternoon and declared officials should be more open to criticism. “I have to be careful about what I say – we all have to be careful because we get pulled up on what we say to the referee. We get fined,” Allardyce said. “Do I agree with it? No, because that’s the wrong sort of protection for referees as far as I’m concerned. “If we want to make them better than they have to be criticised like us all. For me to say too much about how I thought the referee performed, I’d get myself into trouble. “The last thing I want to do is give the referee any of my money that I work really hard for. I’ll take it up with the delegate and make my report once I’ve seen the match again. “That’s all I can do within the system we have, but fair play to Everton, they took full advantage of us being down to 10 men. I thought we’d win, so to lose is a real blow.” Sam Allardyce cursed his luck as transfer target Romelu Lukaku fired Everton to a 3-2 Barclays Premier League victory over West Ham. Press Association Lukaku struck the winner six minutes from time after two brilliant Leighton Baines free-kicks hauled the Toffees back into contention as the Upton Park showdown reached a dramatic climax. Allardyce pursued Lukaku throughout the summer only to be told by Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho he was staying at Stamford Bridge.

He may have been called up late last season had it not been for a knee injury.The Blue Jays are 11-14 and in third place in the American League East. It may have come a year late, but Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is on his way to the big leagues.The Blue Jays announced Wednesday that MLB’s No. 1 prospect has been called up after a short stint at Triple-A Buffalo. Guerrero was batting .367 at Triple-A Buffalo before he was called up.He was hitting .333 on the season across two levels but 15 of his at-bats came at High-A Dunedin as part of a rehab assignment, so they brought down his average a bit, as he was trying to get his timing back.This comes one day after Blue Jays fans found out the team’s No. 2 prospect, Bo Bichette, suffered a broken left hand so this news came at a pretty good time for the city of Toronto.
