Quilt lovers and art lovers alike will enjoy this artistic display of beautifully hand-crafted quilts. This showcase includes bed-size quilts, wall hangings, miniature quilts, baby/lap quilts, wearable art and home décor items. Ribbons will be awarded by guest judges of the Castle Rock Quilt Club. Many of these lovely quilts will be offered for sale.
