Brightening lives one quilt at a time

If there’s a group that knows how to hone their skills and master a craft, it’s probably the ladies of the Prairie Rose Quilt Guild. With National Quilting Day right around the corner, on March 20, their timing is just as impeccable as their quilt pieces after the women recently took their latest creations to the Watford City Middle School, where a number of their intricately stitched designs can be seen draped for display on the railings of the foyer at the school’s library.
“We just thought it was a really nice way for kids to be exposed to quilts and adding color and interest to the library’s second floor,” says Pam Ramage, a long-standing Guild member.
With some quilts exhibiting a bold and busy layout, others feature a more mellow theme. Somehow, each quilt is apt to grab an equal amount of your attention due to its unique pattern and coloring.
“We started doing that about three years ago,” says Ramage, of displaying the quilts at local schools. “We’ve also been active in the elementary school when they do their Pioneer Days.”
