The big event for all Palouse Patchers is the annual Quilt Show held in April. The show has been an annual event since 1981 and just gets better every year. A beautiful raffle quilt is made each year and tickets are sold at the fair and up to the end of the show. The raffle quilt is displayed at local businesses and the quilt show. The lucky winner is drawn near the end of the show. Proceeds from the show help fund our educational events and are also dispersed to a variety of community organizations with the approval of the membership.

Janet Freitag Memorial Challenge and Award
35th Annual Palouse Patchers Quilt Show
The Janet Freitag Memorial Challenge
This year the theme for the Challenge is “Pleasures of the Palouse”. There are many things that make the Palouse special and this year’s theme encourages the participants to express what the Palouse means to them. It may be a person, a building, a crop, a special place. Your quilted entries in this year’s Challenge cannot exceed 120 inches – total of all sides of the quilt. All entries must be designated as a Janet Freitag Challenge entry in order to be considered for the award. The entries for this Challenge will be hung together so that they can be easily found for viewing and judging. Only Palouse Patchers members are eligible to enter this challenge and the winner will be selected by special ballot of Palouse Patchers members during the Friday Family Night viewing prior to the Quilt Show.
About the Challenge and Award
The Janet Freitag Memorial Challenge and Award was instituted in memory of former Palouse Patcher, Janet Freitag, who died after a long bout with cancer. Her husband Scott started the Janet Freitag Memorial Endowment Fund and each year a cash award of $50 is given to the winner of the Challenge. The award money comes from the interest earned by the endowment principal. The Challenge and Award is only for Palouse Patchers members.
