mmmSpecial thanks to all who volunteered and created this year’s ribbons. Mountain Lake Quilters Guild were the organizers with Mary Utt and Deb Curtis making the embroidered centers, and Becky Livingston (and friends), making the Honorable Mention ribbons. Connie Forth printed the category tails.
mmmWe award dozens of ribbons each year at our Quilt Festival. Over the years, we have been blessed with some talented groups who made our ribbons. WVQI is pleased to have Mountain Lake Quilters as a part of our team.
