|Eureka Montana Quilt Show
August 6, 2022
|The Eureka Montana Quilt Show has been a big event for the town since it started in 2005. I have served as the Registration Chair since 2019 and have truly enjoyed helping out. However, as of 2022, I became the new chairperson for the show - never knowing what a huge job that would be! Here are the highlights from this years' show, enjoy!|
Fellow committee members at a planning meeting we held at the Historic Village grounds.
|Show day! Eric and fellow committee-member-spouse Dennis do all of
high work when the quilts are hung early that Saturday.
|Eric & Dennis in action. Poor Eric, this was how he celebrated his birthday!||More of the high hanging work by our husband heroes.|
|The show underway!||Quilts cover the entire Historic Village and stretch for about a mile up main street on all the buildings.|
|Some fairly unorthodox methods of hauling ladders were utilized.
||Street scene featuring one of Gran's quilts (the flower baskets) which
filled the spot of a quilt
that was withdrawn at the last minute.
| The quilt in the center of this shot was everyone's favorite, each
tiny block was for a different
town in Montana.
|We had almost 400 large quilts and around 50 miniature quilts.|
|Looking up main street. The quilts stretch to just beyond the hill you can see in the distance.||The bunny quilt and the watermelon star are two of mine, and are part of a nice street scene too.|
|Even though I was very busy, I was blessed to be able to spend time with Larry, Mary Beth, and Katie.||As well as with Rose & Uncle Tim.|
|We also spent a little time with Jazzy and Noah, as well as many friends.||Back at the historic village. We were so glad to see a large turnout for the show!|
|These pictures are all of me with the quilts I entered in the show. This is called, "Flutterby"||This was called, "Garden Trellis." It sold that day.|
| This was called, "Sparkle Blue Lattice"
|This quilt was made as part of the "Quilts for Heroes" program
organized by Bunny Franklin.
Quilters make a patriotic quilt for the show, then they are all donated to the PTSD ward of the
nearest VA hospital. This quilt was my entry, "American Diamonds."
|This fun quilt was called, "Peppermint Christmas" and it sold that day.||The quilt on the left (the white one) was mine. It was called, "American Blossoms."|
| Me with two of the baby quilts I entered into the show. Mary
Beth purchased the teal & tan one
for a future grandbaby. So nice!
