Stitches in Tyme
Diane Minor took a first place prize at the West End Fair with a quilted wall hanging of a cottage at Honeoye Lake in New York. She said it has 450 pieces. Minor planned the design from a photograph. She exhibited it at the quilt show sponsored by the Polk Township Historical Society on June 10.
When coming through the door at the Polk Township Fire company, the sunshine of a bright yellow quilt made by Virginia Costenbader and shown by her daughter Sandra Borger, made the whole room seem brighter.
The quilt was part of the Polk Township Historical Society's annual quilt and stitchery show, which took place on June 10.
The show featured the beautiful work of fabric artists.
Quilting can be a way to recycle old clothes, scraps left over from sewing projects or new material to be made into something useful or decorative.
Fabric art is described as addicting, and the artists have a love for putting things together, which often entices them into starting a new project when one is done.
