The 200 plus quilts made by members of the Lee's Summit Quilt Guild are displayed as part of the quilt show. This is the time for our guild members to share their love of quilting with our community. Teresa Steele, our featured quilter this year, has a special exhibit of her own within the show in which to display her work. She has been very active in our guild for many years, and she is known for her exquisite hand quilting and hand applique.
Our special exhibit is a touring patriotic exhibit of about 60 quilts honoring our troops and country. It is officially called "God Bless America" and it has many quilts that are featured in the book "Thanking our Troops" from Oklahoma City, OK. (for more information on the book and the exhibits http://www.heavenlypatchwork.com/thanking_our_troops.htm)
In the Guild Boutique, there will be quilted items for sale. There are usually bags, purses, place mats, wall hangings as well as sewing related items. Our bed turning exhibit which is scheduled for three times each day, will involve 40-60 antique quilts displayed on a bed, then "turned back" one at a time with it's history/story revealed. The Opportunity Quilt can be seen on our blog, and it is a cream colored whole cloth quilt. It has been machine quilted and the tickets for it are available for donations of $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00.
