Quilt show best ever

Thanks to all who visited our 27th annual Kachemak Bay Quilters' quilt show last weekend. We had great attendance and lots of appreciation for our works of art. Thank you to Barb Howard of Curves and Dr. Vickey Hodnick for sponsoring our quilt show this year. Their support helped make this quilt show the best ever.

Loraine Murphy's wallhanging, "Red and Black Gallery," was awarded Best of Show. The top three winners in the bed quilt category were Karrie Youngblood for "Finding Your True North," Kathy Pankratz for "Amazon Star," and Vickey Hodnick for "Brother's Quilt." In the wallhanging category, the top three winners were Betty Seaman for "Veggie/Fruit Blocks," Joan Smiley for "Treasure," and Neline VanDyke for "Flannel Alaskan Animals Wallhanging." In the "Other" category, the top three winners were Linda Wagner's "New York Beauty table runner," Ruby Nofziger's "Stack and Whack Fan Quilt," and Joan Smiley's "Mermama." A special thank you to Merry at Ulmers and Neline at Sewciable Quilts for their continued support of our quilt show.
