Every Quilt Has A Story

Presented by Chris Allen

Chris Allen describes herself as a quilter who uses her quilts to tell about her own journey in life, and to document significant events that have impacted her. Her collection that she will be sharing with us includes 60 quilts!! She will start with civil war themed quilts and quilts from the 30’s, and then dis-cuss how women in the past have used quilts to document events in their lives in her “journaling quilts”. She even has a 911 and a pandemic quilt (which she says is covered in toilet paper). During a 2 months stay at home earlier this year due to the pandemic, she says that she was able to complete 20 quilts!!

Chris lives in Newton with her husband Curtis. She has 4 grown children, 3 grown step children, and 11 grandchildren who all “mean the world” to her. Besides quilting, she loves to do stained glass and work in her flower garden. Chris is also very involved in her community. She volunteers at Harvey County Habitat for Humanity as the Homeowners Advocate, is on the New-ton 2nd Century Library Board, is a Chamber Ambassador, and belongs to the Lions Club, PEO Club, and the FCE Clubs. Chris is also in the process of starting her own quilting business “The Long Arm Bandit” . She is currently works at SafeHope, which offers services for victims of domestic violence in Harvey, Marion, and McPherson Counties.
