The Valley Girl Quilt Show was inspiring to many. As people walked around the quilt show you could hear them say, “Wow, that is so nice!” According to Valley Girl Chair Diana Kihs, if there was a Best of Show ribbon it would have gone to Barbara Goodson pictured with her first place king size quilt (above) called “Amish with a Twist,” described as machine quilted with “lots of different blocks with a star in the center.” Kihs said that 28 quilters entered 118 quilts into the show and 15 ribbons were given out to the quilters. The proceeds of the quilt show will go to three youth organizations: I.V. Boys and Girls Club, I.V. Baseball and the Project Youth Group from I.V. High School.
