The Horry County Museum recently held its 23rd Annual Quilt Gala on February 24th and 25that Ocean Lakes Family Campground. This year’s Gala featured over 200 quilted pieces on display and had a record attendance. Categories included large quilts, medium bed and wall quilts, small wall quilts, wearables, and the challenge quilt entries. Each year the challenge quilt category is based on preset restrictions such as colors, fabric, and themes. The challenge this year was themed “Beatlemania”. Quilters were required to choose an iconic Beatles song or album title for their inspiration and create a wall hanging that depicted that title.


Vendors were available for visitor’s sewing and quilting needs, including patterns, fabric, thread, baskets, clothing, wall hangings, aprons, and much more.


The featured quilter this year was Sandra Jacobs. Sandra displayed several of her quilts and gave talks on her experiences and various techniques that she has learned.


The public was invited to vote on their favorite entries. Ribbons were given in each category for third, second and first place. The Best of Show quilt received the most votes overall.


The first place ribbon winners and the ribbon winners in the challenge category will have their items displayed at the Horry County Museum throughout the month of March. All ribbon winners can be seen on the Horry County Museum’s website at www.horrycountymuseum.org.
