Live Onsite Auction! 2020 Benefit for the Humane Society of Morgan County!
Beautiful handmade quilts made by DELECTABLE MOUNTAINS QUILT GUILD A West Virginia University Community Educational Outreach Services (CEOS) Group and member of American Quilters Society. Berkeley Springs, West Virginia.
This year’s theme: America Proud
The show's optimistic theme, "American Proud" recognizes that 2020 is an election year, that everyone should vote and "No matter what conflicts are going on in print and on social media, no matter how citizens may feel restrictive, we, as a country will have our history, our principles, our resiliency and our hope!" says curator, Abby Chapple.
The Ice House is the perfect venue for this show at this time. The venue is a renovated vintage storage building and it is huge. This means there is plenty of room for the display of quilts and wide aisles for visitors to keep 6-feet apart. And of course masks are required.
o Traditional designs include a reproduction Amish Quilt and one displaying Civil War Blocks. There is one showing Mt. Rushmore and one showing the ever popular blue jeans, called "Americas Uniform."
Memory quilts include a family's Model A Ford, one made from a Grandmother handkerchiefs, and another is anniversary quilt for a son and daughter-in-law.
o Among many contemporary quilts are two original, never-shown-before designs: "Mardi Gras" and "American Homestead." Hot off the Press patterns for these two designs are available in the boutique.
o Also on display is the Guild's commemorative quilt made by 21 members, The Morgan County Bicentennial Quilt. It consists of 35 blocks showing people, places and events important to the county.
o A favorite of visitors is the large boutique showing many local handmade items. Included in this shop is fabric, bags and purses, decorative home accessories, loads of toys and quilting sundries.
