Our 41st Anniversary event was a tremendous success. We so appreciate all the generous quilters from across the country who gave of their time and talents to participate. It’s a special person who will make a quilt for a child they will never meet. The 145 quilts will go to CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) to distribute to children in the foster care system who have been removed from abusive homes. They will go to children in our county and surrounding counties.
We had nearly 400 people come through the show. To celebrate our anniversary, we gave a gift bag with store coupons to each person who visited the show. What other quilt show gives you a gift when you come!
The real winners of our Quilt Show are the 145 children who will receive a new quilt to call their own!
However, we did have a few prizes to award.
Most Power of Words Quilts ($200 gift certificate):
Cathy Wallace – San Antonio
The 2 winners of our drawing for Brother Scan ‘n Cut machines are:

Viewers Choice Winners :
Each person was also able to vote for their 10 favorite quilts in no particular order. We tallied the votes and came up with the winners.
We awarded First, Second and Third Place for Viewers Choice. In addition, we gave prizes for places 4-10 (in no particular order). See the winning quilts, quilters and their prizes in the gallery below.
