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

What a wonderful quilt show this year! We had 144 entries in 14 divisions. Beauty surrounded all who entered the building. One couldn’t help smile as they passed the pop-up Double Knit quilt show on the lawn, or stared in awe at the Veteran’s quilts hung with pride. The gorgeous raffle quilt then ushered the guests into the venue, where they were greeted by the beautiful bed turning display. Vendors and demos surrounded the show floor. Guests hardly knew what to look at first!

Each year the quality of the quilting and the variety of the patterns improves. This year was no exception! All of the quilts were a labor of love. The decision of Viewer’s Choice in each category was a difficult one.

We’ve put together several slide shows of the entire quilt show. This post contains all of the winners by category with a photo of each, along with their stories.

Subsequent posts will show all of the quilts and their stories, the Veterans presentation, the bed turning, vendors, and demos. We hope you enjoy the show!
