The 2013 Giving Quilt Exhibit, held April 6 at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center, was a rousing success. Over 560 quilts were exhibited and donated to 25 charitable organizations. Two Quilts of Valor were individually presented to local veterans and a Dreams Come True quilt was presented individually at the show. The quilts were donated by quilters from across Louisiana, and from Mississippi and Ohio.
Thank you quilters and volunteers for your wonderful generosity!
