“Quilt Show” at Ohio Rural Heritage Festival Sat. Sept. 3

By Martha Jacob –
Excitement and anticipation continues to grow for the 2016 Ohio Rural Heritage Festival’s Quilt Show, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 3 at the Union Township Public Library.
The event will take place in the back of the library at 27 Main Street in Ripley.
According to coordinator of this event, Judith L. Gray, this year’s quilt show will be one to be remembered.
“This Quilt Show is free to everyone and is handicapped accessible,” Gray said. “Quilts will be on display coming from all around the area and will be beautifully displayed in the library so visitors can get up close to view all the unique hand-work.
“Plenty of parking will be available behind the library.”
Gray said that a “Baby Quilts” and “Trunk Show Quilts” event will be shown in a special exhibit.
“The crib size, baby quilts and youth bed size quilts will also be exhibited,” Gray said. “The “Trunk Show Quilts” will be quilts from one family, that has its history or makers of the individual quilts. Knowing the history behind the quilts is so important.
“We still have several trunks to be filled, so we are hoping quilt owners will know a lot of the history behind the ones they have on display.
“Each visitor who visits the Quilt Show will be asked to vote on their favorite quilt.
“We would like to not only celebrate the rich history of these quilts but also protect this old traditional skill of quilt-making.
“Please stop by and join us on Sept. 3 during the Ripley Rural Heritage Festival at the library.”
Anyone who would like to display a quilt or quilts, please contact Gray at (937) 392-0245 or email
