Our Tivoli Fest Quilt Show yesterday was well attended. We had seventy really nice quilts. Because it was Elk Horn's Centennial year we accepted antique quilts as well as those recently made.
Winners were chosen by voter's choice. I think the "judges" take their jobs seriously. Third Place went to Betty Clemmensen of Audubon, for her Birds of a Feather. Marilyn Mathies from Omaha, Nebraska placed second with her Batik Sampler. Oh, My Gosh! made by Susan Wagner from Oakland, Iowa came in first. Those tiny squares shown in the detail are one half inch. The quilt has close to ten thousand pieces so you can see how it got it's name.
Thanks so much to all of you who shared quilts. Everyone commented on the overall quality of the show. See our website for more photos.
