About 100 quilts were displayed at Back Country Quilters’ 13th Annual Quilt Show at Mountain View Community Church on Friday and Saturday.

Quilter Carolyn Miller’s “Vicky’s Flower Basket,” featuring detailed stitching by Susie Johnson, was made for Ramona resident Vicky Gassaway. The long arm stitching sews together the quilt top, batting, and back, and includes designs of

apples.

Vicky and her husband John collect quilts, calling quilting a meticulous medium.

“We see this as folk art,” said John Gassaway.

The Ramona couple said they have at least 75 quilts of various sizes that they hang on the walls of their home and rotate, depending on the season.

Miller said she applies what she has learned in painting classes to her quilt patterns.
