Preview of the 2020 Watch for Rainbows Quilt Challenge Show
March 13th and 14th at The Main House (details below the photos)
Click any of the images below to bring up a slideshow of these beautiful quilts.
On March 13th and 14th we will display all the quilts entered in our challenge. You are invited to come to The Main House (across the parking lot from Creations) and view these great quilts before they are given to CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate). The show will be open from 9:30 – 5:30 both days. (You can see a preview of the bright colorful quilts in the gallery below.)
There is no admission fee and the first 420 visitors will receive a gift from Creations. Grab your quilting, or non quilting buddies and make a day of it. We invite everyone who attends to vote for their 10 favorite quilts. The quilts with the most votes will earn a gift certificate for their maker.
Creations will also be giving away a quilt at the show. A donation of $5.00 to CASA will get a ticket for the quilt. At the close of the show, we will draw from the tickets and the winner will receive the finished quilt. You will need to come to our Quilt Show to see the donation quilt. Remember, donations will only be taken during our show, so you have a great opportunity to win a finished quilt.
Come and help us celebrate the generous quilters who shared their time and talents with children in foster care.
After the show, visit the shop to find some great values on our 3 yard rolls, 1 yard cuts and sale fat quarters. We have added lots of new fabrics to these groups. These quality fabrics at great prices make wonderful quilt backs or just additions to your stash.
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!

These quilts will go to the Rainbow Room in Kerrville, Texas and will be distributed to children removed from their home environment.
We have 227 quilts in the viewing, which will all go to the Rainbow Room. 150 of these quilts were submitted as part of the “Stir What You Got” quilt challenge. The remaining quilts, weren’t part of the challenge, but were donated by the gals at Creations as well as other customer contributions.
We appreciate the overwhelming participation we received for this worthy project.
