WINFIELD — “Sunflowers on My Mind,” a quilt made by Janice Rhodes, will be given away soon by the Cowley County Historical Society.
This beautiful sunflower quilt features appliqué and some three-dimensional blocks. Each block was made using a different technique.
It is predominantly yellow, brown, bronze and green. This generous queen-size bed cover measures 67 inches by 85 inches.
Opportunities to win the quilt will begin Jan. 27 at Celebrate Cowley County History, when tickets may be purchased for $1 each, or six for $5.
With Kansas Day two days later, visitors may celebrate the state flower — the sunflower — by giving themselves a chance to win this quilt.
Additional details about where to view the quilt and purchase tickets will be released later.
An accomplished quilter, Rhodes created this quilt while she was president of the Walnut Valley Quilters Guild.
It was a block-of-the-month quilt made when Marilyn McSpadden was pattern chairman and machine-quilted by Kim Hull, of Douglass.
Rhodes was a longtime resident of Winfield until moving recently to Hesston.
