Sunbonnet Sue’s celebrate 25th quilt show
The Sunbonnet Sue Quilt Club hosted about 1,500 visitors over Lavender Weekend at Sequim Middle School for its 25th annual show. Members showed 200 quilts, including visitors’ choice for Best in Show “Carousel Dreams” by Sherry McEntire and quilted by Rhonda Coler.
