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.

And the last slide show is a compilation of photos from this year’s show. We tried to get a photo of every quilt and their description. We missed a few, so if we missed yours and you have a photo of it, please email us and we’ll add it in! Sit back and enjoy the quilts. There are around 300 pictures to view! (Thanks to Susan Bell, Barb Bevell, Bonnie Schultz, and Brooke Ivy for the photos.)
