Our July Program featured Julee Prose, from Iowa. What a treat! Julie is prolific at creating appliqued masterpieces. The members were in awe of all of the quilts she showed. There were FOUR large suitcases of quilts! She was totally amazing!
Some of our members couldn’t make the meeting because of the County Fair and they asked that we post lots of pictures. Well, I hope this is enough. There are over 200 photos below. You’ll see the entire quilt and lots of close-up details. The photos are broken up into groups, to make viewing easier. Enjoy! Be sure to click on the image to enlarge it.

The June Show & Tell was a lively one, with lots of beautiful quilts to share. Sit back and enjoy the show!
The 33rd Annual Quilt Show of the Hands of Friendship Quilt Guild was held at the William Matthew Middle School in Kirksville, Missouri, on June 1 and 2nd, 2018. Over 140 quilts were on display. Viewer’s Choice awards were given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in each of 12 categories.
The theme of this year’s show was “Pass the Traditions… to Future Generations”. It’s so important that we pass the quilting traditions on to future generations. Part of the Community Service work the guild did earlier in the year was to help Kirksville area Girl Scouts. Scouts learned about quilting and how to construct a block. Those blocks were on display at the show.
Other special displays included the Community Service corner with Beads of Courage bags, the raffle quilt, our annual Bed Turning, a display to honor Kathy and Stan East, and a display to honor Kimberlynn Bartlett. The highlight of the show was the Veteran’s presentation which honored five local area Veterans with special quilts made by several guild members.
In addition to all that excitement, there were over 12 vendors in attendance, providing a variety of quilting-related goodies for all. New this year, was “Nana’s Second Thoughts”, a booth with lots of unusual items for sale. These new and gently used items were donated by members throughout the year and beautifully packaged for resale.
After awards were presented, the 2018 raffle quilt winner was drawn. Andrea O’Brien was the lucky winner!
