BOONE, Iowa—Those who attended the Boone County Fair and took time to visit the air conditioned comfort of the Community Building had a chance to vote for their favorite quilt blocks, sewn by adults and youth in the annual quilt block contest. First place in the adult division went to Merlene Geiger with Rooster Wins the Prize. Second place went to Brenda Snider with Granny Square Block. In the youth division, Aubrey Keenan won with Grandma’s Pie and second went to Arabella Hau with an unnamed block. Connie Sturtz is the coordinator of the Quilt Block Contest. She will use the 49 quilt blocks that were entered to make a quilt using the theme “Grandma’s Day at the Fair”. That quilt will be raffled off during the 2013 Boone County Fair.
