Besides the showpiece quilt there will be dozens of others with designs, including Broken Star, Lone Star, Sampler, Mariners Compass, Star Fan and Log Cabin. Along with quilts, there are comforters, rugs, furniture, household items, crafts, a queen buggy, vacations, hotel packages, 4-H meats, many miscellaneous items and a bake sale items to be offered.
