Quilt Show Winners
First place, $40, went to a sixty year old quilt belonging to Carol Luther. Her father designed the quilt and both her mother and father embroidered designs of horse and rider in various poses across the quilt. The embroidery was filled in with thousands of stitches and very well done.
Second place, $25, went to Carolyn Wickett’s pieced quilt. All borders were pieced and it was a Christmas wall hanging quilt, very well done.
Third place, $10, went to an antique quilt made in the 1930s belonging to Pat Schemmer. This quilt was an album quilt or signature quilt, precious memories of the past with names of family and friends from the 1930s.
Honorable mention went to Viola Coleman’s tapestry. It was made in Shelby Co, Indiana in 1850 by her great grandmother. Her great grandmother gathered, carded, spun and dyed the wool. Designed the throw, and wove it, putting the date and place in the borders, precious, precious piece.
Thanks to all who entered quilts in our show, to Carolyn Wickett and Arvella Foster who helped work the show and to the Heart of Christmas committee who provided the chamber bucks prizes.
