Photo by Susan Holland An antique crazy quilt, dating from the mid-1800s, received many votes for the people's favorite award in the "My Grandma and Me" quilt show Saturday, Oct. 28, at the Gravette Civic Center. The quilt, owned by the Gravette Historical Museum, features many colorful irregular blocks and several styles of decorative stitching.
A "My Grandma and Me" quilt show, cosponsored by the PieceMakers Quilt Club and the Gravette Historical Museum, was held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, at the Gravette civic center. Forty-seven quilts were entered in the show. Most were large quilts to be used on a bed, but several small lap quilts, table runners and wall hangings were displayed. This was simply a quilt show, not a competition. Quilts were not judged, but guests at the show were asked to vote for their favorite quilt. Lou Romine was the winner of the favorite quilt judging with her Family Memories quilt using a photo display of scenes from the Romine family's home and farm life. She received a gift basket.
