First quilt show in the books

Arlen Bird, Union, earned top honors as show champion for her "American Glory" quilt, a reproduction of a quilt first stitched in the early 1800s.

Sue Bruss, Huntley, claimed the People's Choice Award with her  "Who Doesn't Love Christmas (Presents)"  –  Raw edge reverse applique made using leftover fabrics "from her stash."

The overall results are as follows:

• Hand Quilted Bed Size - Appliqued: First, Bird (declined prize money); Second, Annette Hagerty, Harvard

• Wall Quilts - Pieced, Appliqued, Mixed Media or Other: First, Janet Meyer, Huntley; Second, Christine Bienek,Crystal Lake

• Heirloom (pre-1965): First and Second, Barbara Peterson, Prairie Grove.

Thanks to everyone who participated in our first, in what we are confident, will be a long line of yearly shows. Special thanks to Fabric, Fiber & Finds and Material Girl for their donations and to volunteers Dale Morton, Bill Dysart and Bob Lee for creating the quilt stands.
