Eureka Montana Quilt Show (EMQS)
August 1, 2020

Each year, our town takes on a major undertaking.  We put on a huge quilt show that covers the entire town with 100% volunteer effort.  This year the show was in danger of being cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions.  However, since it is an outdoor show and naturally social distanced, it was allowed to proceed. 

I took a much larger volunteer role in this year's show than I have previously.  I took on the Registration Chair role and it was a full time job for about six weeks.  But I enjoyed the work and was so happy to help put on this wonderful show. 


One of my favorite volunteer jobs is pre-sort.  I help the team of ladies
accept all of the quilts for the show, get the labeled, and sorted for hanging.

  I roped Eric into a volunteer role helping to hang and take down the quilts. 
We worked with these two fellows hanging quilts on the high parts of the
Historic Village.  That man shown above had NO fear!  He is hanging a
quilt made by my beloved and now departed Gran, Wanda Morton.   
 Views of the show up and down the streets  
 The quilt at the far right in this shot was one of Gran's creations.  Also, the purple Dresden Plate in this shot was also made by Gran. 
   The miniature booth.  I don't think you'll ever find my work here, too intricate for me! 
 The pink double wedding ring quilt on the left is one of Gran's. The church again, I loved seeing Gran's Lone Star hanging there under the cross.  

Bunny Franklin collects donation quilts for veterans.  Here's a view of her display with
my contribution shown up front.  (Which was really the back side of the display!)  :-)

Gran's Lone Star again, I love this quilt!

 This vintage top was one I bought at an estate sale and finished.
 I really loved how it turned out, it was so nice!  
This is a very heavy quilt at 9 pounds - it has batting and a blanket back. 
It was made from vintage fabric I found at an estate sale. 
 My "Bright Roses" lap quilt. I forget what I called this quilt, it's teal and the light fabric has a wonderful sparkle.  The backing
is beautiful too, it's butterflies and flowers.  I love this quilt. 

This pattern is called, "Yankee Doodle".  It's my second quilt from this pattern. 

  This one also has sparkle fabric.  It is now owned by my Uncle Tim Casazza (via Rose.) 
This baby quilt has a super-soft Sherpa backing.  Hanna Rose 
Casazza now owns this one (via Rose again!) 
This "Hens & Chicks" quilt of mine sold within the first few minutes of the show.
I hope the new owner loves it.  I thought it turned out very cute! 
The chickens were cut from vintage fabric I found at an estate sale.

Gran's Dresden Plate

Here are the quilts of Gran's that I entered into the show.  This is a silk 
crazy quilt that I love.  I can remember some of this fabric from Gran & 
Aunt Vi's dresses when I was a kid. 
 Gran's Flower Basket Another one of my quilts, this one is called, "Rivers of Roses"
