Streetsboro Quilt Show - Continued

This was the favorite pick of the Streetsboro Quilt Show - Rachel's Baskets made by Helen Rankin of Aurora, Ohio.  I can see why it was the pick of the show.  It was hand quilted, has soft lovely colors and an interesting log cabin frame.   

Prisoners Quilting Project - Grafton Correctional Institution

An interesting display of quilts at the show was made by the all male population at a state prison in Ohio, Grafton Correctional Institution.  How wonderful that the men quilt, knit, crotchet and cross stitch.  The finished products are then donated to charities.  They are giving back to the community and I think this is a charity that I would like to support.   If you are interested in this program, the contact person and number on the flyer is Barbara King, Deputy Warden at 440-748-1049 ext 203. Look at the beautiful quilts make by the prisoners!
