Fayette Festival of the Arts


"Granny's Attic: 200 years of Quilts"  theme of 2023 Peacemakers Quilt Show

Quilt Show“Incredible,” “awesome,” “amazing,” and just plain “wow” are just a few of the reactions of visitors to the Peacemakers Quilt Show each year and the reactions to the 2023 show honoring Fayette's Bicentennial  "Granny's Attic: 200 Years of Quilts."  were no exception. As in year's past, the show was in the sanctuary of Linn Memorial United Methodist Church in conjunction with the Fayette Festival of the Arts. There was no entrance fee but the Peacemakers accepted free-will offerings at the door. One of the Peacemakers’ goals for the show was to raise money for the Fayette Ministerial Alliance Food Pantry.
Another goal is to share the beauty of quilting with the community and to provide quilters with a beautiful venue in which to show their work to others. Quilters and non-quilters alike commented on the beauty, the creativity, the hours of work, the number of stitches and the love that goes into the quilts displayed at the show.
In addition to organizing an annual quilt show the Peacemakers also make quilts for the national Quilt of Valor program. They were able to display some of these quilts in the back of the sanctuary.
