Nola Straub of Wauneta sat in the Chase County Museum in Champion last Sunday,  painting fabric. She plans to do the same this Sunday, during the second weekend of the quilt show. Sponsored by Crazy Quilt Guild, the show features quilts she, her mother and sister have made.
Over 60 people enjoyed the displays last Sunday.
Local quilters contributed other quilts, for a total of about 60 displays of quilts, wall hangings and table runners.
The quilts will be available for viewing at the museum from 1-4 p.m. Sunday.
