Icelandic Aurora Takes Best of Show

Icelandic Aurora Takes Best of Show

Stunning...radiant...amazing...incredible...We sure heard a lot of that during this year's Festival.

We are so thankful for those who entered quilts into our show and for the more than 70 people who donated quilts for the auction. Each and everyone was special and delighted our more than 1,400 guests who attended the Festival over the past two days. 
 

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:
