|On May 9 a group of Guild members enjoyed making 2' x 2' barn quilts in a workshop led by Suzi Parron. It was held in a member's barn complete with a rooster crowing periodically. Here are several photos with a few of the steps of taping and painting, drying and several of the finished barn quilts. (Click on a photo to see a larger image)

The Quilt Show continues Saturday and Sunday, April 28 and April 29 at the Heritage Park Carriage House Hall. Directions, admission and additional information is available on the Quilt Show page.
|Mystery category quilts|
The quilts along this row are part of the mystery quilt category. Participants didn't know what the final design would look like. They were given fabric suggestions and each month the coordinator provided another step to complete. Even though a similar block was used, the quilts can look so different due to fabric, background and border variations.
|Carol Bornsheuer's quilt|
Other categories include the Board Game Challenge, Round Robin, Large, Lap/Twin, Miniature/Wall, and Miscellaneous.
The red and white quilt is one of the last pieces that Carol Bornsheuer at 87 and a long time guild member worked on before she passed away in 2017. It was completed by Leslie Peterson at the family's request. (photo on the right)
