Special Displays

 

Learn to Crazy Quilt:  Learn the basics of crazy quilting. It will include a free block pattern, some basic stitch instructions as give-a-ways, blocks in various stages to show how to construct one and a large block that people can actually stitch on. Plus completed quilts on display

 

 

Miniature Quilt Exhibit:  For this exhibit, miniatures will be pieced, crazy quilted, or embroidered and will be to scale with total dimension of 12” or less. When you photograph a miniature done to scale, it looks like a full-size quilt.

An Old Fashioned Bed Turning

Don't miss this unique look at quilts and their history.

 

A "Bed Turning" is a way of introducing quilters and non-quilters to the beauty of antique or unique quilts in an interesting and different way.

 

A bed is brought in and quilts are placed on the bed.  As each quilt is turned and held up for the audience,  the story of the quilt is given along with a description and the date.

 


Quilt Appraisals

 

Ann Hazelwood Certified AQS Quilt Appraiser, will be with us again to do appraisals. She will be located in the YMCA conference room.
