Quilters, thanks for your participation in our 6th open quilt show at
the WOWSPACE in Wittenberg, WI. This was a non-juried, non-judged show. 37 quilts were displayed at the show which ran for 3 weekends. The show included the quilted creations of 22
different quilters from 12 different cities as well as an antique baby quilt and a redwork signature quilt on loan from the Wittenberg Historical Society.
Linda Krueger, owner of Pinery Patches in Tigerton, Wisconsin received the Award
of Excellence for her quilt titled Christmas Street. This award was determined by a quilter's choice vote of the quilters with work in the show. The decision recognizes the high level of technical
skill employed by the quilter.
3 Peoples' Choice awards were presented based on approximately 160 votes cast by
visitors to the show who were asked to vote for the quilt which appealed to them the most.
1st place went to Debra Court of Black Creek, Wisconsin for Memories of Vietnam.
This quilt was made from old army uniforms worn by her husband, Robert, during his basic training and service in Vietnam. This quilt will one day be passed down to her two sons.
2nd place was awarded to Mary Beth Koeppel of Wittenberg, Wisconsin for Galaxy of
Geese. Her quilt was made of 1930's reproduction fabrics in a variety of pastels and includes 476 Flying Geese units in the overall design.
3rd place was awarded to Gloria Kohn of Birnamwood, Wisconsin for her quilt titled Tumbling Stars which she
refers to as a "Someday Quilt" for her oldest granddaughter, who will receive it either as a wedding gift or housewarming gift for her first house.
The 2020 show featured an Honor Quilt display and a selection of gently used
quilting books and back issue quilters’ magazines available for a free will offering. Show admission was FREE. (The guest speaker cancelled due to the weather
and we weren't able to reschedule.)
