Laurie Sweeney is one of many quilters who gives generously of her time and creativity by donating quilts to the annual Camp Knutson Quilt Auction.
In addition to quilting, she also loves fishing, which is what she happened to be doing when reached on the phone earlier this summer.
Sweeney began quilting in the late 1990s, when she decided to take a leave of absence from her job teaching math and French in the Brainerd School District. After a few weeks of being home, she needed something more to fill her time.
