The Back Country Quilters' Twelfth Annual Quilt Show started Friday and continues Saturday, Oct. 15.

Approximately 100 quilts are on display, demonstrations of various needle arts are being given, and shopping opportunities for gifts and sewing supplies are available from a variety of vendors and from the consignment shop sponsored by the Back Country Quilters. Lunch items and snacks are available.

The show is at Mountain View Community Church at 1191 Meadowlark off state Route 78 and Ash Street from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

Tickets may be purchased for the Opportunity Quilt “A Star is Born” when entering the show. The Opportunity Quilt is a king-size quilt designed by Debbie Heaton and made by members of the Back Country Quilters.

The fabric for the quilt was donated by The Crazy 9 Patch in Ramona, and the quilting was done by Ramona quilter Linda Card. The drawing will be at 3 p.m. on Saturday. The winner need not be present at the drawing.

Drawings for door prizes will be held throughout the show.

Proceeds from the Opportunity Quilt tickets will be distributed to Ramona charities.
