Sew Sweet Quilters Quilt Show a HUGE Success

Oh what a weekend!

Our local guild's show was a great success. With over 140 quilts on display 9 vendors, a featured quilter and door prizes, there was something for everyone!

Our Best In Show quilter is probably the best quilter I personally know. Debbie Hart has recently moved to our area from Michigan and is so giving of her talents and tips that we are blessed to have her in our guild. Her hand appliqued and hand quilted bed quilt is a beauty. Quilted with varigated thread and using a mixture of vivid colors, this quilt was admired by all.

Also on display was a quilt made in 1939 by our local baptist church. Church members paid 10 cents to have their name embroidered on the quilt and then the quilt was auctioned off, raising an additional $10. The quilt is still in the family of the winning bidder. This is the black background quilt in the slideshow. This quilt along with other antique and some judged quilts were displayed in the church sanctuary.
