The annual show consisted of almost 100 quilts, a variety of vendors and delicious food from the Senior Center volunteers. Guests were given gloves to wear, protecting the quilts. Along with the quilt raf���e, door prize drawings were given every half hour. The organizers placed one unique quilt in the ���place of honor��� near the entrance. This quilt was displayed by Geneva Lee of Burley, Idaho, a 99 years old snowbird, who spends 6 months in Quartzsite. Her mother hand stitched the pieces and hand quilted the blanket, sometime in the 40���s. It appears brand new; Ms. Lee believes it was never used. Residents and Snowbird Quilters work all year sewing quilts to donate to La Paz County foster children & the women���s shelter in Parker, Quartzsite Fire & Police Departments, as well local children. This past Christmas, 20 blankets were given to the children participating in Quartzsite���s After- School Program. A special thank you to all that attended the show and supported our quilt group.
