Seven-year-old Braeden Rich learns a little about his genealogy as he views a quilt made by his great-great-grandmother Minnie Bell. It won second place in the pieced category. Braeden is the son of Justin and Kayrn Rich.
Fairgoers stepped back in time at the Antique Quilt Show, as heirloom and current quilts filled Fairfield Village Courthouse. The annual event is held during the first weekend of the fair on Saturday and Sunday afternoon in the historic log building. It is sponsored and presented by members of the Hearth and Home Quilters Guild.The idea of the show is for all quilts to be antiques of at least 50 years of age, but some quilts were on display and not eligible for competition in this year’s show.
