The quilt show is just around the corner, but the Leisure Days quilters already are preparing their 2015 park quilt.
The quilters of Leisure Days RV Resort are getting ready for their ninth annual quilt show on Feb. 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Several visitors last year said the Leisure Days quilt show was the “best in the area.”
Visitors are invited to view the numerous quilts on display, have fun at the raffle table, watch a hand-quilting demonstration, and enjoy visiting with other quilters and friends.
A very special drawing will take place at this year’s show. Gertrude Dupuis of Midland, Mich., was an avid quilter, but unable to finish her last quilt. At her daughter’s request, the Leisure Days Quilters accepted her beautiful hand-pieced quilt as a group project to complete.
The quilt, appraised at $2,300, was presented to Gulfside Regional Hospice for fundraising. The drawing for the quilt will be at the annual quilt show on Feb. 8. Tickets will be on sale at the Leisure Days park-wide sale on Feb. 1.
Leisure Days is at 33543 Leisure Days Drive, off Morris Bridge Road and State Road 54, in Zephyrhills.
