(Le Mars) -- Visitors to the Plymouth County Fair will want to stop by the Open Class Exhibit Hall to view the many different quilts on display.  Geri Dreckman has been making quilts that go on sale on Sunday during the Fair Auction for a number of years.  Again, this year Dreckman has put needle and thread together to create two different quilts.  When entering the open class building from the east doorway, People will notice a brown king-size bed quilt hanging on the north wall.  Dreckman says this year's quilt was inspired by a midwest newspaper.

Dreckman says she invested 180 hours of work to complete the quilt.  Dreckman says she started working on the quilt around Christmas time.  If one quilt wasn't enough to occupy Dreckman's time, she also created a second quilt.  The second quilt honors the 100th Anniversary of Wells Blue Bunny.
