This year there were nearly 70 quilts exhibited, including a tribute to Bea Goddard, a local master quilter who passed away just 3 weeks ago.  Bea’s family members were so gracious in lending some of her prize winning quilts as well as the quilt she was making for this year’s show, still in progress.  On exhibit are also Bea’s many ribbons and awards. Bea will be missed by many in the quilting community.
