Mrs. Geoffroy selects fabrics for quilt


Block by block

ISU's Kathy Geoffroy (center), Janelle Swenson (left), Quilting Connections, Ames, and Dorothy Faidley (right), Colfax, select fabrics to be used in an Iowa State Sesquicentennial quilt competition at the Iowa State Fair this summer. Each contestant in the "block competition" will use the fabrics to create one quilt block. Selected blocks will be stitched into a quilt that will be on display at the fair and sold at auction Aug. 18. In a second competition this year, quilters can submit complete ISU sesquicentennial-themed quilts. Faidley oversees the fabrics and threads division of state fair competition. More about the ISU quilting contests can be found online. Photo by Gary Clarke.
