Kathleen Lambert and Hardy Chandler of the Western North Carolina Quilt Guild show a quilt among those on display Saturday at the Blue Ridge Mall for National Quilting Day.

The Western North Carolina Quilt Guild hosts its annual show today at the Blue Ridge Mall for National Quilting Day.

 

This year's theme, "Do You See What I See," required quilters to use one-third of a yard of orange fabric in their design. The quilt exhibit is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. A people's choice award will go to the most popular quilt.

The quilt shown by Kathleen Lambert and Hardy Chandler is "Two Koi," by Sandra Fey, based on a decorative manhole cover made in 1978 to commemorate the Okinawa Sea Expo. Fey's design depicts the Nishiki-goi, a breed of koi in Ojiya City, Japan. Quilters dropped their work off at Beginnings Quilt Shop, 1032C Greenville Highway.
