Southern Comforters Quilt Guild of Bowie, Maryland


2006 Quilt Show

A Rousing Success!

On March 11-12, 2006, the Southern Comforters hosted their annual quilt show at the C. Elizabeth Rieg School. The amazing collection of over 160 quilts by guild members drew many appreciative comments and votes. Many of the winning quilts will be shown again at the 2007 show, for those who may have missed them.

The raffle quilt was won by a fellow quilter from Eternal Quilters in Glen Burnie, Maryland, Beth Roos, who chose to attend the guild meeting on March 22nd to receive her prize. (Click on the picture to see a full-sized view.)
