This is the Newsletter of the Hands of Friendship Quilt Guild of Kirksville, Missouri.

The September Program was the 2016-2017 HOF Challenge Reveal, “Curved Quilts”. The rules: Your quilt had to have curved piecing in it.

Members were encouraged to enter their quilt for judging (by silent ballot) by guild members. If you didn’t finish it in time for this reveal, you are encouraged to finish it in time for the quilt show in June. All entries will be hung together at the show.

There were 12 participants. Kay Beach, Debra Freese, Elsie Gaber, Joan Harrison, Diane Jarvis, Linda Kowalski, Andrea O’Brien, Marilyn Peck, Cathy Poyner, Celia Riggle, Bonnie Schultz, and Rose Marie Smith.

The winners were as follows:

  • 1st–Debra Freese ($25 gift certificate from Wildflower Quilting)
  • 2nd–Linda Kowalski ($20 gift certificate from Grandma’s Room)
  • 3rd–Diane Jarvis ($15 gift certificate from Hobby Lobby)
