  • OTTAWA -- Several celebratory events will be staged during the 90th Ottawa Valley Farm Show, March 14-15, including auction of an anniversary quilt as part of the annual Prestigious Pedigreed Seed Sale raising funds for the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario. To date, the sale has collected $130,000.

    The burgundy, beige and gold log-cabin style quilt with each block radiating out from a golden wheat field has been assembled over many months by a core of 12 volunteers led by Nancy Grundy. As she has for the past several years, Grundy will coordinate the quilt display at the farm show, focusing in 2017 on heritage creations.

    The display will be held in the front exhibit halls along with 4-H projects and antiques organized by Vintage Iron & Traditions of Eastern Ontario. This year, one hall has been reserved for the 90th celebration with a focus on live fiddle music and step dancing, local food, farm-themed bingo, the President's Cookie Contest, and much more.

    The quilt will fit a king-size bed. It's reversible, with the flip side featuring a 40-by-40-inch appliqued landscape encompassing both the old and new logos of the farm show and the Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association which has sponsored it since 1927, back when it started in Renfrew County as a rotating seed competition and exhibition.

    "The landscape celebrates evolution of the farm show. You can use it on the bed or flip it over and hang it on the wall," Grundy observed, adding that it's priceless. "It's the one and only."
