Pam Dannon of Boardman received one of the people’s choice awards for her wool and flannel appliqué quilt, “Berties’ Choice,” during the Boardman Fall Quilt Show Oct. 13-14 at the Boardman Senior Center.


Nearly 90 quilts and wall hangings vied for top honors during the 2017 Boardman Fall Quilt Show, held Oct. 13-14 at the Boardman Senior Center.

The adult people’s choice winners were a trio of Boardman women, including Pam Dannon for “Bertie’s Choice,” a wool and flannel appliqué quilt; and “Big Mouth Frogs,” a cotton appliqué creation by Glenda and Tammy Bozarth. Also, Esther Birt won in the 9-11 age group and Teagan Birt was tops in the 12-14 category. And Terri Dorran of Hermiston also walked away a winner, taking home the Holiday Jewels raffle quilt.

Featured quilter Lila Killingbeck of Boardman displayed a number of her creations. In addition, mini-classes provided tips in several quilting techniques and a country store and vendors provided shopping opportunities for fabric enthusiasts.

Thirteen vintage, historical or sentimental quilts were shared during the “Quilt Turning” program. A short story of each quilt’s past was read as the layered quilts were turned down on a bed. The popular activity will return during the 14th annual show, which is planned for Oct. 12-13, 2018.

Special appreciation in helping with the show was given to the “set-up and take-down” crew, that included Ron Morgan and athletes from Riverside and Ione high schools.

All area quilters are invited to join the Boardman Quilt Group, which meets Mondays from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Boardman Senior Center. There is no fee to participate. For more information, contact Kathy Hyder at 541-571-7009 or kathyhyder05@gmail.com.
