2019 Hootin an Hollarin quilt show includes 28 colorful entries

Katie Hoversen won the Best in Show ribbon in this year’s Hootin an Hollarin quilt show for her pieced and hand-appliqued “Climbing Jacob’s Ladder” quilt. Hoversen made the quilt using scraps and other pieces of fabric given to her by friends after all her quilting supplies were destroyed when her house was washed away in the 2017 floods. See more photos in the quilt show album on the Ozark County Times Facebook page, which includes winners of the Judges’ Choice and People’s Choice ribbons as well as the “Out of This World” quilt made and donated by Linda and Gary Smith of Sycamore.

Twenty-eight beautiful quilts were presented for the public’s enjoyment at this year’s Hootin an Hollarin quilt show sponsored by the Friendly Neighbors Extension Club. Katie Hoversen won the Best in Show ribbon for her hand-appliqued “Climbing Jacob’s Ladder” pattern. Sandra Stone’s machine-pieced memory quilt won the Judges’ Choice ribbon. The quilt Lou Arta Corbin made for her granddaughter as a graduation gift won the People’s choice award. 

Hanna Lynne created our youngest entry. She pieced and quilted a pretty pink quilt last year when she was 11. The quilt won first place in the youth category.

We thank everyone who shared their works of art and colorful creations in this year’s show.  Your willingness to share with us makes our show a success.
