The Leisure World Quilters sixth biannual quilt show will be held February 24, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Main Hall, 400 East 18th St. in Weslaco. The quilter's raffle quilt is king size measuring 106"x106" in green, rust, and gold colors. Tickets are $1 each or six for $5 and are available from any of the Leisure World quilters or at the show. The drawing will be held at the end of the show, and you don't need to be present to win.
While the quilters traditionally piece the top in the intervening year, this year's quilt was particularly challenging due to Covid restrictions on use of and number of quilters that could be in the quilt room. In addition to making the raffle quilt, the quilters make comfort quilts for residents experiencing serious health problems and walker bags, clothing protectors (bibs) and lap quilts for the local veteran's home.
