For years now I’ve made it a point to attend the annual Maumee Valley Antique Steam & Gas Association Show held East of New Haven on the third weekend of August. This year’s quilt show drew entries from Allen County and neighboring states. There was such a variety of both vintage and modern quilts, larger bed size and wall hangings, kit quilts, traditional and modern designs. Some of the quilts were hand pieced, embroidered, and appliqued, and others were created and quilted entirely by machine. No matter what techniques were used, they all reflected the creativity and passion of their makers.
