Designed and created by nineteen very talented and dedicated women is our stunning 40th Annual Fair Quilt. The idea of making such a quilt was sparked at our 39th Annual Fair. A planning committee consisting of Elmira Seibert (chairperson), Virginia Fry, Pauline Hood, Dessie Moxley, Mary Streaker, and Kim Sullivan, oversaw the making of the 116 in. X 86 in. quilt from its beginning in November of 1984 though its completion just hours before the opening of our 40th Annual Fair in August of 1985. Thirteen different blocks, each pieced and/or appliqued with embroidered details, depict various aspects of the fair capturing ideas that were inherent to the fair in 1946, as well as 1985. The outside border is quilted with boys and girls hand in hand with prize ribbons to represent the people who “make the fair go ‘round.” On the reverse side, each quilted square is identified with a counted cross stitched square listing the names of the artist, appliquer, embroiderer, quilter, and labeler. This cooperative quilt truly captures the spirit of our fair.
