Letter: Art of quilting on display in Kennewick

March 20, 2014 

My creation, River Aglow, was one of 15 challenge pieces for the "Our Rivers -- Our Perspectives" quilt show. Each was done for the Tri-City Quilters' show today and Saturday at the Three Rivers Convention Center. They will then hang in the new Hanford Reach Cultural Center for the grand opening in July.

The annual show of 400 quilts is an incentive to complete my quilting projects. I want to thank the members of the Tri-City Quilters Guild for their encouraging support and for their workshops and programs, and for providing a venue for community service.

More than 300 quilts have been donated this past year to such places as Domestic Violence Services of Benton and Franklin Counties, the Tri-Cities Cancer Center, Tri-Cities Community Health, Habitat for Humanity, Tri-Cities Chaplaincy's hospice and Wounded Warriors. Making these community quilts is a great way to increase one's skills.

Please visit our show today and Saturday to see the wide variety of opportunities for the fascinating, creative hobby of quilting. There's more to quilting than making bed covers.
