Area quilters are invited to enter their creations in the annual Boardman Fall Quilt Show.
In addition to quilts people have created, the show is open to displays featuring heritage family quilts. The show is open to all quilters of all ages.
Prizes will be awarded for people’s choice and special prizes also will be presented in the youth category. Registration for submissions is due Monday, Oct. 1.
The show, which is in its 14th year, is Oct. 12-13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Boardman Senior Center, 100 Tatone St. Admission is $3, which is good for both days.
In addition to the quilts on display, vendors on hand will include Thimbles, Fabric ‘N More from Pendleton, Serendipity Designs from Heppner and The Sewing Basket and Quilted Country Inn from Prosser, Washington. Kathy Morgan, a member of the Boardman Quilt Group, is the show’s featured quilter.
Also, a pair of quilts created by quilt group members will be raffled off. Tickets are $1 each or $5 for a yard (18 tickets). People can purchase tickets at the show, as well as during the Morrow County Harvest Festival, Oct. 6 at the SAGE Center.
The drawing will be held Saturday, Oct. 13 at approximately 3:30 p.m. at the quilt show. The winner doesn’t have to be present. Money raised from the quilt raffle is used by the group to pay rent, bring guest instructors and to deliver quilts for community service projects.
