Country Fare Quilter’s Guild received three fantastic ribbons on the 2016 Donation Quilt “Everything’s Black and White” at Muskogee Area Quilt Guild’s annual quilt show last month: First Place in the Group Category, Judge’s Choice, and Viewer’s Choice. The quilt was put together by members Linda Hertensteiner and Paula Klaassen with 2015 Fabric Challenge blocks created by various guild members and then machine quilted by guild member and President Judy Haines. The quilt will be given away at our annual “Autumn Leaves” Quilt Show in October, 2016 (exact date pending). Tickets can be purchased from guild members or at one of our regular guild meetings. Congratulations, guild members!
