More than 200 quilts of all sizes and shapes will be on display during this three-day show. This year's theme is Diamond Jubilee to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Stephen Foster State Park Museum. Since 1950, the Stephen Foster Museum has delighted thousands of park visitors with interpretive exhibits, collection objects and delightful dioramas dedicated to the songs of composer Stephen Foster. The Carillion Tower contains the world's largest collection of tubular bells. Four times each day, the 97 tubular bells play various Foster songs in a mini-concert for guests to enjoy. Quilts will be displayed throughout the park, including in the Stephen Foster Museum and the park's auditorium. Quilts will be judged by Nan Moore, a national recognized author and quilt appraiser. Boutiques, quilting supply vendors, demonstrations, lectures, door prizes and a food concessionaire will take part in the event. A highlight of the weekend includes the Million Pillowcase Challenge where the Lady of the Lake Quilting Guild will attempt to sew 60 pillowcases in sixty minutes. The pillowcases will be donated to the Lake City Veterans Hospital and Haven Hospice. This Challenge will take place on Friday and Saturday, October 15 and 16 at 10:00a.m. For more information or to learn how to enter a quilt please call toll free 1-877-635-3655 or visit our website.
