North Manchester, IN (January 9, 2018) – Peabody Retirement Community named the winner of their 4th Annual Peabody Quilt Show & Contest. A $1,000 prize was awarded to Warsaw Community Church for their winning quilt entry, Sweet Sixteen, created by Roberta Tucker.
“Back by popular demand, 2017 was the fourth year in a row we hosted a quilt show and contest—inviting area churches to enter to win a monetary award,” says Peabody Residential Marketing Director, Angela Woolard. “Quilter Roberta Tucker was the winner for the second year in a row.”
Tucker’s winning Sweet Sixteen lovingly stitched creation brought the promise of spring to Peabody’s quilt show. As temperatures dropped at the end of 2017, voters viewed the quilt entries while sipping hot cocoa and perhaps it’s not surprising they were drawn to the winning quilt. It features 16 beautifully appliqued spring and summer flowers—each one different from the next.
“It’s a lovely quilt, and we were delighted to present the award to Roberta again this year. She attends Warsaw Community Church, including the Sunday school class taught by one of Peabody’s residents. She explained that the $1,000 award will help fund the church’s WCC Community Care Program. Money in the fund is carefully given to those in need,” Woolard says.
According to Peabody, celebrating the ageless spirit is something they do every day at the retirement community. So their annual Quilt Show & Contest—which celebrates the timeless beauty of a lovingly stitched quilt—is becoming a tradition. For questions about the annual contest or the community, churches and families are invited to call (260) 982-8616.
