Several members of the Piece and Plenty Quilt Guild worked together to create this year's chance quilt.
The quilt was revealed in February to the Quilt Guild Committees unanimously naming the quilt, Stars in the Garden — a fitting name, for sure.
Several guild members pieced the quilt. Ruth Rakop, Yvonne Meloy and Kathy Stack, long time members, designed and/or applied the hand applique.
Terri Welch quilted the quilt and Joan Bast-Haussels traditionally completed the quilt by attaching the binding. The quilt is truly a beautiful blend of plenty of piecing, team work and hours of volunteered workmanship; an example of the fun and work found within quilt guilds.
Every other year the Piece and Plenty Quilt Guild (PPQG) host the Ozark Festival of Quilt Show in Rolla.
Save the date for Oct. 5 and Oct. 6. where the community can see the beautiful displays,vendors, have lunch and snacks and get a chance to win a one of a kind, beautifully created quilt.
As always, the PPQG invites quilters, “wanna” be quilters and quilt admirers to join them at their monthly meetings held the first Thursday of every month in the Fellowship hall of the First Presbyterian Church located at 10th and Holloway. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. For more information check out their website www.pieceandplenty.com
