Are you ready to get your quilt gazing on? Another great collection of quilts of all sizes, patterns and colors have been judged and hung with care by the hard working ladies and their husbands of the Piecemaker Quilt Guild of Corsicana.
The quilts will be on display from Oct. 3 to Oct. 28 at the Warehouse Living Arts Center located at 119 W. Sixth Avenue. The gallery will be open from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. from Monday to Friday, and Saturdays Oct. 8, 15, and 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
On day one, these dedicated volunteers haul in and assort, list, and categorized all of the quilted entries. Each quilt handled and set with care.
The second day finds the ladies carefully laying out each quilt to be visually dissected and judged based on a multitude of factors.
Day 3 comes the displaying of the quilts. Husbands join their wives and they cover every inch of wall they can find with glorious quilts.
There is also a quilt up for raffle. Tickets are $1.00 each or six for $5.00. Drawing will happen on Oct. 28 at 12 p.m.
