Southern Comforters Quilt Guild of Bowie, Maryland


2009 Quilt Show

A Day at the Beach!

On March 21-22, 2009, the Southern Comforters hosted their annual quilt show at the C. Elizabeth Rieg School. The amazing collection of over 150 quilts by guild members drew many appreciative comments and votes. Many of the winning quilts will be shown again at the 2010 show, for those who may have missed them.

The raffle quilt was won by guild member, Kathy Kent (Click on the picture to see a full-sized view.)
