Washington County Fair Winners

Thanks to all those guild members who entered quilts in the 2011 Washington County Fair held in late August, including Ann Roberts, LoVina Payton, Kate Allen, Carla Gay, Katha Carter, and Adele Atha.  Hopefully these quilts have inspired a fair-goer to consider the creative world of quilting that we all enjoy so much!  Congratulations to the following members for being recognized with special awards:

      Carla Gay – Grand Champion/Best of Show

      Carla Gay – Champion for Bed Quilts – Machine Quilted

      Thanks to Sager Creek Quilts and Rabbit’s Lair for sponsoring many of the special quilting awards.  Q.U.I.L.T. gave two $25 prizes for “Best Applique by Machine” which went to Jenny Johnson and “Best Use of Color” which was awarded to Katha Carter.

      If you didn’t enter this year (and you live in Washington County), be sure to watch for the Fair dates in 2012!

Pat Anglin Cuddly Quilts for Kids

A total of 26 quilts were turned in at the August meeting and given to Diana Gilchrist for distribution at the Children’s Shelter. 11 quilts were from the workshop in July.

If you made these, let me know so that I can give you credit. Members took 17 quilt kits put together at the workshop to quilt. If you are making quilts for our project and need batting, email me the size and I will bring batting to the next meeting. I will also bring more kits to be quilted.
