In a telephone interview, Wandering Star Pat Bott said about 75 visitors came to the show.

She said the club earned more than $1,000 on a magnificent bowtie quilt they prepared as a fundraiser. Money from the quilt will be used to buy materials for the next quilt to be raffled and to purchase materials for club projects. Currently, the Wandering Stars are preparing lap quilts for hospice.

The winner of this year’s quilt was Kay Bowman, of Carrabelle and Michigan .

Heirloom quilts are treasures that help us stitch together our family history and keep our ancestors alive to us. Many thanks to the Wandering Stars for sharing their memories with the public.
