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.
