River Country Quilt Show

The annual River Country Quilt Show was held recently at the Jacksonville High School. The show featured quilt appraisals, vendors, raffles, antique quilt bed turnings and a variety of other quilting-related happenings. The cafeteria at the high school was set up as a large display area, showcasing entries into the show. One particular quilt titled “Blossoms of Friendship” was made with a traditional needleturn (also needle turn) appliqué. Quilters at the event were explaining how every little piece is individually turned under by the needle when applying it to the quilt. Bonnie Meyers made this particular quilt and used (5) 325-yard spools of quilting thread in its creation. Detail is shown, as well.
