Quilts at Muncy’s Textile Show

By Carol Sones Shelter - | Jul 20, 2021
“Courthouse Steps” was displayed on a bed frame. It had been made by Kansas native Alvernia (Shoner) Worthington of wool challis and cotton. The quilter’s husband, Edward Worthington had followed his uncle Charles Worthington to Kansas where he met and later married Alvernia on May 6, 1880. Edward moved his family back to Muncy after the births of their first two children. The piece was on loan by great-granddaughter, Sue (Worthington) Scott.
“Summer Lake Log Cabin” was entered by Lucy Henry, South Williamsport, who explained, “My brother grew up with and old log cabin quilt on his bed. It is long gone so I made this for his bed.” Lucy’s quilt won second place in the Challenge category.
“Blossom and Bloom” by Abbie Appleman of Turbotville, won 2nd place in the Contemporary division. She said, “I like trying new patterns especially those with curves.” Abby, who placed in three addition categories, is the granddaughter of the late Lucille Poust Appleman, Wolf Township native near Hughesville.
