Lucas Theater Quilt Show on Aug. 9th from 3 - 7 pm and Aug. 10th from 1 - 5 pm. The theme was "Fall and Friendship Quilts". This was a local exhibit to go along with the Kansas Humanities Council "Kansans Tell Their Stories" Traveling Exhibit in Lucas at the Flying Pig Studio and Gallery from July 25th through Sept. 2nd. There were 31 quilts and 14 wall hangings, with other items like pillows, rugs, and afghan. Those who were displaying the quilts were Tess Dunkel-McKnight, Lois Geir, LeeAnn Herold, Mary Lou Steinle, Delma Naegele, Judy Hower, Linda Brant, Lynn Schneider, and Shirley Svaty. Around 35 people viewed the quilts and handiwork from Lucas, Sylvan Grove, Luray, Scott City, Abilene, Salina, Minneapolis, and Brentwood California. Jim Tasker of Minneapolis and his sister from California were very impressed with the community of Lucas with its several attractions and the multifunctional theater facility. The quilt show was a local exhibit of the Kansas Humanities Council "Kansans Tell Their Stories" exhibit which is on display at the Flying Pig Studio and Gallery in Lucas until Sept. 5th. The friendship quilts with names of classmates and teachers or neighbors embroidered on the blocks were fun for local visitors to reminisce over. Other favorites were the t-shirt quilt, grassroots art quilt, and the bright and cheery fall colored quilts. Some of the quilts were hand stitched and hand quilted while several were quilted and bound by the Lucas "quilt shop" of Ray and LeeAnn Herold. The Lucas Theater was a nice cool place to enjoy the warm comfort of the wonderful quilts. The 2012 quilt show theme is "Old and New Memories" to go along with the 125th Anniversary of Lucas.
