    Our little town of 400 has an annual event called Old Settlers every year and it celebrates our history as a pioneer town founded in the mid 1800s.

    We have a quilt show every year in the church that sits beside the park in the middle of town.

    So you will see quilts laid over the pews.

    This year was the first time I got to show all 8 of my doll quilts at the Quilt Show and show off all the pretties I got from my friends!!!

    What a beautiful way to display the quilts, I love to see churches used like this as community centres. And am honoured to have a piece of mine included. :-D

    Awesome! I see that the local guild was making tree skirts this year! I love that design and wish I had it!

    The quilts are all lovely! I'm looking forward to our local quilt show which I thought was this fall but it looks like it isn't. maybe they are on the every other year plan?

    Our quilt shows used to be alot bigger. This one only took up about half of the pews with only about 5 pieces hung on the wall. A lot of quilts are not brought in due to people passing away and or going into nursing homes and the quilts are either passed on or the family members are not particularly quilt lovers.
    the lady who had always organized the show is now in a nursing home herself and unable to do the show anymore. The lady who now does the organizing is not particularly liked and a lot of people don't bring their stuff because they don't want to deal with her. Which is sad.

    I know Marsha(first organizer) worked hard to bring in lots of quilts and there would be so many that it was hard to find room to display them. The church has 4 rooms with dividers at the back of the vestibule(where the pews are) and they would be full to overflowing as well as all the walls would be covered. A few years back they had to drape quilts on the organ and the pulpit as well as the railings in front of the pulpit.

    I just hope some of these quilters will come back next year and bring their quilts in again.
