Exhibits in two locations of more than 210 quilts, vendors selling quilted items and quilting supplies, a donation-only “quilters’ thrift shop” and experts demonstrating intricate quilting techniques… You’d think it would be a quilt overload. But people browsing through the exhibits at the Nazareth Motherhouse and the Living Hope Foursquare Church all day Saturday could talk about nothing else — and many were looking forward to the quilt auction this evening at the Catholic Church Parish Hall.

The church is at 307 E. Fifth St. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., with the auction scheduled to begin about 7:45. There is no admission charge to take part in the auction.

There will be 20 pieces in the auction, including a Harley-Davidson quilt featuring logos of the motorcycle company in the trademark black, brown and orange colors. Donors were asked to give at least a portion of the proceeds to Neighbor to Neighbor.

Sponsors of the KS 150 QuiltFest include the Knot-Tea Ladies Quilt Guild of Glasco, Kan., Cloud County Convention and Tourism, Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia, Stained Glass Stitchers of Concordia, Concordia Lutheran Church  and Living Hope Foursquare Church.
