Last year, quilters were invited to make a quilt block during the “Just One Block” challenge held at the Dallas County Fair.
The blocks were on display during the fair with viewers voting on their favorites by depositing money into a corresponding container.
Following the fair, Jacque Johnson, owner of Adel Quilting & Dry Goods Company, stitched the blocks into one quilt. Johnson was also the sponsor of the event.
The finished quilt will be auctioned at the Dallas County Fair Sponsors Dinner Wednesday, July 9 and will also be on exhibit during this year’s fair.
Proceeds from quilt will be used to purchase new chairs for the Dallas County Fairgrounds Community Building. Many more items will also be auctioned during the event. For more information about the auction, contact Sherry James at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
