Flash mob by local quilters on BXCO square


     A "Flash Mob" of over fifty local quilters from the Hill 'N Hollow Quilters Guild surprised employees at the Baxter County Courthouse and shoppers at the weekly Farmers' Market on the courthouse square Wednesday morning with a performance of the "Quilt Makers' Shuffle."   Waving quilts they had made, the women danced around the square to "Take the Long Way Home" by Supertramp.   Among those surprised by the Flash Mob was Baxter County Judge Mickey Pendergrass.
