Desiring a wallhanging to display beside a bookcase was the inspiration for Naomi Narita’s handwork. The theme for this year’s annual challenge of the Swamp Fox Quilters Guild is “Black and White Plus One.” Choosing red as her add-in, Narita’s book-themed quilt evolved to become “Little Red Riding Hood.” “Once Upon a Time There Was” are the words featured – as with every good fairytale. Black wolves surround the border which also includes forest trees, granny’s house and red tulips. The piece measures 28 ½ inches by 35 ½ inches. It is machine pieced and received two second-place ribbons. The ribbons were awarded for “Best Pieced” and “Best Use of Theme.”

The “Black and White Plus One” exhibit from the Swamp Fox Quilters Guild will be on location at the Hartsville Museum through Aug. 29. The museum is open Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free, and the museum is handicapped accessible.
