This show highlighted the accomplishments of many of the members of the Odds 'N Ends quilt group.
Doris Steigleman--Doris has been quilting for about 20 years, but quilting is her heritage. Many of the quilts displayed here were done by
her mother, Dora Ballard. Doris won Show Favorite 1st Place, Appliquéd 1st Place, and Large Hand Quilted 2nd Place, at the 26th Annual
Clark County Quilt Show in 2001 for her Baltimore Album Quilt. Her favorite technique is appliqué.
Marj Hadley--Marj is a well known quilter and fiber artist in this area. she has been quilting since 1970, but has enjoyed making dolls and
clothing for them since childhood. Her works have attracted national attention. She has published books and patterns and has been
featured in several magazines. Of her long relationship with Clark County Quilters she says, I'm so proud of what this group has become and
the good that it had done. I feel honored to have played even a very small part in it."
Diane Manning--Diane joined the group in 1991. She loves appliqué, and is inspired by the beautiful work all around her. Her future
aspiration is to finish all the UFO's. Just imagine, with four daughters she has to make four of everything!
Pat Derby--Pat is the cheerleader for the group. It was through her appreciation of the beautiful work done by members of this group that
we were encouraged to participate in this event. She loves textiles and machine piecing. In her words, "My only claim to pitiful fame is a
second prize for the block entered in a CCQ quilt show block contest--and that was a shock!" We all agree when she says, "Quilters are the
best people. I am richer through my associations via quilting."
Kalen Petersen--Another long-time member of the group, Kalen loves hand piecing and quilting. Her snow ladies have won Best of Show.
She believes "With quilting you can inspire someone, comfort someone, and help share with one another."

members of the group." She also does china and tole painting.

would like at the machine.
