Southern Comforters Quilt Guild of Bowie, Maryland


2007 Quilt Show

A Sea of Fabric!

On March 10-11, 2007, the Southern Comforters hosted their annual quilt show at the C. Elizabeth Rieg School. The amazing collection of over 190 quilts by guild members drew many appreciative comments and votes. Many of the winning quilts will be shown again at the 2008 show, for those who may have missed them.

The raffle quilt was won by guild treasurer, Loretto Cartney. (Click on the picture to see a full-sized view.)
