Iron Quilter Competition

The Iron Quilter competition, three teams of two quilters given just 75 minutes to create a quilt after receiving "a bag of mystery fabric," added three more quilts to the silent auction of quilts created by members of the Glass City Quilt Commission in a benefit for the Victory Center. More than 150 quilts are on exhibit as part of the Kaleidoscope of Quilts XV Quilt Show at the Franciscan Center at Lourdes College in Sylvania, Ohio on July 15, 2011.
