”I ♥ Quilting Mix & Match Monday” Project

This year Cornell Cooperative Extension of Delaware County’s Executive Director, Jeanne Darling, is offering quilters and the public another opportunity to participate in a quilting project to support cancer education and screening.

This year’s County Fair quilt project will encourage quilters and the public to celebrate “I Quilting Mix & Match Monday.” We would like to display quilt projects this year at the Delaware County that have been especially fun to create and will inspire others to create a quilt/quilted project. This year CCE Human Ecology fair exhibit will feature “Healthy Monday; Dedicating the First Day of Every Week to Health.”

To participate in “I Quilting Mix & Match Monday” project, each individual or group is asked to complete a wall hanging or mini-quilt by Friday, July 8, 2016. The quilted projects will be displayed at the Delaware County Fair August 15-20, 2016 and may be available for bid. Quilt projects bid money will be donated to Relay for Life. Quilters can also volunteer to do quilting demonstrations at the Delaware County Fair.
