The Quilt Show takes place annually during Tulip Festival. At the show, you’ll have the opportunity to view nearly 175 handmade quilts. Various quilting demonstrations take place during the day as well. The show is organized by the Sioux Prairie Quilters.
Bed Turnings are a traditional way women shared their quilts with one another. They met in homes, and since there wasn’t room to display all the quilts at once, they layered them on a bed. As each quilt was uncovered, the maker told its story: where she got her fabric, how she chose it, how much fabric she used, her pattern, and any challenges she had during the making. The SPQG bed turning includes contemporary, vintage, and historical quilts along with their stories.
