Long-time quilter hosts show in Ludowici

LUDOWICI, GA (WTOC) - Over 250 quilts were on display at the Celebration Castle in Ludowici Oct. 26. People came by to take a look at the quilts and some even bought one to take home. Putting on a quilt show is a dream that Dewayne Stewart, 78, has had for decades. Stewart said she has been quilting since 1951 and does it every day. Even with all her hard work putting on the show, she is still very humble.

"I had never thought of it being anything great but a lot of friends saw my work and wanted to see my work. They made it possible for this day to happen," said Stewart.

Stewart says quilting is something she has always really enjoyed doing. She even made the dress she was wearing.
