West Sound Quilters’ Annual Quilt Show Brings Theme of ‘Tradition with a Twist’

West Sound Quilters' Annual Quilt ShowWest Sound Quilters’ annual show features around 300 quilts made by members, plus wearable art, vendors, demonstrations, quilt turning, a raffle quilt, a treasure chest, auction blocks, community quilts, a café and more. The show has the theme “Tradition with a Twist” this year and runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 6 and 7, at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds, Presidents’ Hall.

Simone Montfort, this year’s featured artist, is a local artist whose quilts, wall hangings and wearable art have a distinctly whimsical and vibrantly imaginative flair. She is a prolific quilter, and has an incredible collection of hand-constructed quilted jackets (a.k.a. wearable art). Montfort has personally constructed more than 50 jackets and eight will be on display.
