Organizers see ‘renewed interest in art of quilting’

The 19th annual Quilt Walk Around Polson featured a plethora of entries that were on display for two weeks, from Feb. 9-23, in the downtown area. According to organizers Susan Brown and Susan Hartman of sponsoring business All in Stitches, there were 23 entries.

“Entries were up this year, probably due to a renewed interest in the art of quilting,” Susan Hartman said. “There was a wide variety of skills and technique. We were excited to be able to show these to people of Polson and the area.”

There were eight businesses that had quilts displayed. They included 13 quilts exhibited at All in Stitches; three at The Salon; two at Sears Homestown Store; and one each at Crow’s Nest Gallery, Gage Accounting, Caras Property Management, 219 Main and Second Nature.

Julia Howlett came out on top in the judging, winning first prize with her intricate and colorful “One Block Wonder” quilt. It was quilted by Peggy Olson.

Evaluations by the judges were difficult, as there was a three-way tie for second place. Those quilts, with their entry titles and quilt makers — Lynette Rundell’s “Border Diamonds,” quiltied by Marcy Watson; Pat Pool’s “40 Fabulous Years,” quilted by Susan Gorder and Bea Radermacher’s “Garden Party,” also quilted by Gorder.

Each of the top-four entrants received an All in Stitches gift certificate.

By coincidence, all four prize-winning quilts were shown at All in Stitches.

“Thanks to the other businesses that displayed the quilts,” Hartman said.
