Quilt display and auction set for weekend of Sept. 28, 29
The city of Duvall will get a jump on fall colors on Saturday, Sept. 28, during "A Festival of Color," Duvall's first annual outdoor quilt show.
Colorful quilts will be hung on the outside of Main Street shops from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
There will be live quilting demonstrations and music.
Quilters from all over the area are invited to show their talents. Quilts can be as little as a hotpad or as large as a king-size bed. The show is open to anyone who has a homemade quilt. Registration forms are available in The Quilter's Garden, 15726 Main St. NE, Duvall, and must be submitted before Sept. 21.
Some historic quilts may be viewed inside the Duvall Library or Duvall Books.
Many of the quilts on display during "A Festival of Color" will be auctioned off on Sunday, Sept. 29.
The auction will raise money for the construction of the kitchen in the new Catholic Church to be built across the street from Cherry Valley Elementary. The auction will feature handmade quilts and other quilted items.
The event, which includes a bake sale, will take place at Cherry Valley Farms on Cherry Valley Road. A preview is set for 1 p.m. Bidding will start at 2 p.m.
