Festival of Quilts

The 14th Annual Festival of Quilts attracted more than 1,400 visitors and generated more than $71,000 for our kids. We thank you!

Mark your calendars now for next year's Festival: Friday-Saturday, April 5-6, 2019.
 

About the Festival:

Colorful Success

 
"I know I had fun," 10-year-old Quentin said. "Today was about friendship, sportsmanship, courage, respect, just a lot of stuff. I know I learned a lot."
 
Quentin, a student at Cunningham's CIRCLE Academy-Vermillion (CAV) in Rossville, and his classmates and teachers had just finished the school’s first Color Run and he was beaming with pride.
 

The Art of Healing

Gerber School's art classroom was a hive of activity on Jordan's* first day at Cunningham. In one corner, a girl wearing an over-sized apron hunched over a pottery wheel. Across the room, a boy carefully sketched his favorite superhero, while another fashioned an abstract collage out of magazine photos and scraps of fabric. Jordan was having none of it.

"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.

While determining the Quilt Show winners of this year’s Festival, the judges had a monumental task but here are the best of the best:
