The 31st Annual HOF Quilt Show

The 31st Annual HOF Quilt Show was held June 3 – 4, 2016 at its new location, the William Matthew Middle School, in Kirksville, Missouri. Over 150 quilts were displayed to the delight of attendees. Eleven vendors surrounded the quilt show, offering a variety of items for sale, from fabric to wooden treasure boxes. A “Vendor Shop Hop” was a new addition this year, allowing attendees the opportunity to get their “passport” signed at each vendor in hopes of winning a HUGE basket of items donated by each vendor. This year’s winner was Marsha Redmon.

The Raffle Quilt Committee outdid itself once again with the beautiful blue and white paper pieced medallion quilt. Andrea O’Brien was this year’s lucky winner of that gorgeous quilt!

Everyone enjoyed the Historical Bed Turning, the Community Service Corner, the demonstrations, and the “Sit and Sew for Veterans” area.

A happy and unexpected moment happened when Glee Hanson and her sister, Joy, came to the show. Glee was one of the charter members of the Hands of Friendship Quilt Guild in 1985. She and Kay Beach are the only charter members in attendance. Glee brought a quilt from 1992 that all HOF Guild members had signed for her. Several of those members were there and came together for pictures.

The setup began bright and early. Lots to do this first year at the new location. Some ideas worked like clockwork, other things needed adjustment, but all-in-all, it was a great show. Check out the photos of setup, vendor booths, and other things.

2015 Hands of Friendship Quilt Show Was Huge Success!

The 30th annual Hands of Friendship Quilt Show is now in the record books. What a wonderful event it was! The show was held at the YMCA in Kirksville, Missouri, on May 29 and 30.

So many exciting things happened!! There were over 100 beautiful quilts on display, from small art quilts to large bed quilts. Four Bed Turnings were held throughout the show and each were standing room only. Demonstrations on hand quilting and machine piecing were going on most of the time during the two-day event, as well. Community Service displays of the Veterans Quilts and Project Linus quilts were among the highlights of the show. Seven vendors from Iowa and Missouri were in represented and lots of shopping was taking place.

We saw many new faces in the crowd. Some had traveled quite a distance to attend. And several attendees expressed desire to become members! I think a good time was had by all.

After several days of uploading, editing, tagging, and proofing, the photos are ready to share. Below are slide shows of all of the winners of each category, the 2015 Raffle Quilt winner, photos of every quilt that was on display, and random pictures of the show itself. We hope you enjoy these photos as much as we enjoyed seeing them in person.

(If you have additional photos to share, please email and let us know.)

Here’s what Barb had to say:

“I had been visiting with Shelly at her booth at the back of the YMCA when my son called to talk. As I talked to him, I headed back toward the demonstration area to put away my purchases. I heard people yelling my name and I didn’t know why. It got so loud and insistent, that I had to tell my son I’d have to call him back. Kay kept telling me, “you won”. My first reaction was that I won a ribbon in a category. I think I looked at her funny, because I didn’t know why she made such a fuss over winning a category ribbon. Then she told me I won the raffle quilt. I really thought Kay was kidding me until I looked around and saw that everyone else was smiling, too. Boy did it take a few minutes for it to sink in. I had no idea that they were drawing for the raffle quilt, much less that my name had been drawn. What a wonderful surprise! This beautiful quilt is proudly hanging in my home and will be a cherished remembrance of my friends in the guild. Thank you so much. I am truly blessed.”
