Cats, Calico, and Cross Stitch:Bishop Hill Quilt Show 2017
Quilt Show May 19th - 21st
Friday and Saturday 10-5 pm
Sunday 10-4 pm
I am always astounded at the variety, creativity and skill presented at the annual Prairie Queen Quilt Club Show. After sampling the entries this year, I have an urge to "stitch together" a new phrase to convey the artistry exhibited... but the perfect superlative to express such excellence escapes me! Come and see for yourself; the show will surely delight all.
The photos here give a sneak peek at just a few of the 100+ quilts on display in the Colony School at the 2017 themed show, Cats, Calico, and Cross Stitch. Included in the show are antique, miniature, patchwork, applique, and embroidered works.
Admission is $5.00. Proceeds from the show will be used for various charity quilts distributed to local hospitals, homes for the elderly, veterans, and children in need. The Prairie Queen Quilt Club Theme Challenge quilts will be on display in the Steeple Building Museum.
