Entitled “Waste Not, Want Not,” The Log Cabin Quilters (LCQ) Third quinquennial (recurring every five years) show on July 11-12, was a roaring success with more than 300 visitors coming from as far afield as Prince George, Lillooet, Chase, Vernon and Kelowna.

Every square inch of Interlakes Community Centre was draped in a magnificent rainbow of quilted pieces, ranging from full-size quilts to table runners, mats and wall hangings.

LCQ members all wore fascinators (a headpiece), making them easily distinguishable from the hundreds of visitors milling around, and tea tables were adorned with beautiful, quilted or appliquéd tablecloths.

The club’s Waste Not, Want Not sales table carried a most appropriate sign reading: “The most peaceful sleep under Heaven above is under a quilt that is handmade with love.”

The beautiful red, black and white raffle quilt was won by Sara Hockett of 100 Mile House; and the Viewers’ Choice of Quilts award went to Mieke McIntosh’s “Cats & Mice.”

Although thoroughly exhausted, LCQ members were delighted with the success of the show, and voiced particular appreciation for the wonderful support.
