Quilters hold 36th quilt show
September 30, 2020
The 2020 Corn Festival quilt show featured 33 finished quilts, 12 unfinished quilt projects and nine quilts for display only. The displayed quilts were from two different charity groups. The first one was Haxtun Sew Giving, which is a group of ladies who put together lap quilts for the nursing home, quilts for cancer patients and whatever else is needed. The second charity group was Quilts of Valor. This year, 142 people attend the quilt show, which is close to last year’s attendance.
The People’s Choice Quilt winner went to Janice Everitt’s Elephant Quilt. The People’s Choice Quilt Block went to Lennette Hutt.
The Ann Olson Award goes to a quilter who has used at least 50 different fabrics in one quilt. The recipient of this year’s plaque was Lavonne Hart. Her quilt was titled Hart Family.
Gay McDaniel was asked to pick a raffle ticket out of the tumbler. The winner was Lennette Hutt.
