ROSALIA – The Harvest of Quilts outdoor show brought colored fabrics and new faces to town on July 23.
After enduring two years of pandemic cancellations and cutbacks, organizers say this year's "Bounce Back" themed show brought in steady attendance and no shortage of crafts.
"It was a great opportunity for people to see Rosalia, visit friends and enjoy artwork," said Harvest of Quilts committee vice chair Rachel Blakeley.
Local quilters displayed their work in downtown Rosalia from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, while viewers had the opportunity to vote on their favorite pieces.
"We had a lot of good help and we had about 40 quilts," said organizer Marianne Morkve.
At the end of the day, Brenda Burger of Spokane was awarded top pick for the people's choice award.
Artists also participated in a quilt block contest, which was won by Cynthia Halasey of Cheney.if(typeof ez_ad_units != ‘undefined’){ez_ad_units.push([[300,250],’wcgazette_com-medrectangle-3′,’ezslot_0′,114,’0′,’0′])};if(typeof __ez_fad_position != ‘undefined’){__ez_fad_position(‘div-gpt-ad-wcgazette_com-medrectangle-3-0’)};
Next year's festival is set to be held on the fourth Saturday of July next year, the theme being "Garden of Delights."
