Another Family Tradition was created this year with the 2017 Linn County Fair Quilt Block Challenge contest. Connie’s Quilt Shop supplied the kits that included colors from this year’s fair logo. Fifty quilt blocks were purchased. Contestants had to use all fabrics and create a design with a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Connie’s Quilt Shop.
Blocks were displayed at the 2017 Linn County Fair June 28th to July 2nd. The blocks were judged for the Viewer’s Choice and the winner was block #18 created by Sandy Feldman of Alburnett. Later the blocks will be made into a quilt to be raffled off at the following year’s fair. All proceeds will go towards improvements of The Linn County Fair.
The 2016 Quilt Blocks were quilted into a beautiful quilt that was raffled off and the winner was announced Sunday, July 2nd at the fair. The winner was Dave Roll.
