11th Annual Llano Grande Quilt Show Best of Show

Kaleidoscope of Diamonds, the 11th Annual Llano Grande Quilt Show, came to a “sparkly” conclusion with the drawing for a Janome sewing machine generously donated by Llano Grande Resort. The winner was Jan Alvestad, a Winter Texan from Williams, Iowa, and Texas Trails RV Resort. She became interested in quilting in the 1970s when she saw some quilts made in the 30s at auctions. She started quilting around that time but really got going when she retired in 2006. She is active in two local guilds and said she truly loves making quilts and other fun things. We are so happy Jan won the sewing machine and will put it to good use. The Bee wants to express its gratitude to the Hynes Group for supporting the Llano Bee Quilt Show with such a great donation and the use of the Hynes Event Center.

February 23, at the Park Show-and-Tell event, the drawing for the 2020 Opportunity Quilt, Kaleidoscope of Diamonds, was held. The winner was Llano resident Cher May of West Branch, Michigan. She said she was very happy to win the beautiful quilt. The colors remind her of Mardi Gras!

The People's Choice Best of Show was awarded to Monica Myers for her exquisite paper-pieced quilt, Quarry Treasure. In addition to being an excellent quilter and long armer, Monica has been the Llano Bee president for five years. Thank you, Monica, for your outstanding leadership.
