Quilt show to be at Pottery Festival

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

CLAY CITY -- The Clay City Calico Quilters will sponsor their 25th quilt show at the Clay City Lion's Club Pottery Festival June 9-10.

While most of the festival events will take place at Goshorn Park, the quilt show will be set up in the R.E.I.N. Center Community Library, 700 Main St., Clay City, just south of the Ford dealership.

Show hours are Saturday, June 9, from 9 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday, June 10, from 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

The show will be open before other festival activities Friday, June 8, from 6-8:30 p.m.

Admission at all viewings is $2.

All quilts displayed are new to the show with the exception of the 2011 Viewer's Choice Quilts, which are shown again when and if they are available.

Each year, the individuals viewing the show are asked to vote for their favorite in each of the following categories: Old Favorites, Bed Quilts, Miscellaneous and Challenge.

The bed quilts will be displayed in full view, as well as wall quilts, baby quilts and various quilted items.

Quilts, made as a club project, for the Council on Domestic Abuse (CODA), will be shown and later presented to CODA.

Challenge quilts, designed by members, will make up another exhibit.

Two coordinating fabrics were chosen and members add extra fabric of their choice to create a wide variety of small quilts. These quilts showcase the individual talents and creativity of members.

Each year, there are door prize drawings as well as instant winners. The door prizes, many handmade, are provided by individual members.

Club members invited all to visit the show.
