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.
