"My First Trip to Baltimore" Takes Best of Show

Much to our delight, and to the delight of our hundreds of visitors, the 13th Annual Festival of Quilts featured a record 67 show quilts and 69 auction quilts.  Each and every one of the quilts were truly unique and amazing and made for quite a show!  We thank all who provided these beautiful quilts.
