The Donation Quilt this year is titled “Spinning Stars” and was made by more than 20 LAP members learning how to paper piece the blocks during a workshop and then the blocks were worked on individually. It was assembled by Donna Smith and quilted by Nicole Dunn. Tickets will be available at the show. The winning ticket will be drawn at 3p.m. Saturday.
This year, the door prizes donated by the vendors will be packaged together. All members and entrants to the show will be eligible to win the vendor prizes via a drawing by visiting all vendors at the show.
