Jean McRay shows off the large, colorful quilt which she has made and donated for a drawing at the Nov. 12 Fall Festival in Gowensville. The pattern is entitled “Quick Trip.”

This is the sixth year that McRay, a member of the Landrum Quilters, has provided a quilt for the event. She will also demonstrate quilting during the festival, held at the Gowensville Community Center on Highway 11 near the intersection with Highway 14. The quilt, which is 90 x 108”, was machine quilted by Bobbie Raines. Tickets will be on sale during the festival, which is the annual fundraising event staged by the Greater Gowensville Association to help maintain the historic community center, built in 1922.
