This year’s Duvall Outdoor Quilt Show “A Festival of Color” was yet again blessed with fine fall weather, if you don’t count that late afternoon cloudburst.
Colorful quilts were displayed throughout town including some Project Linus quilts in the Duvall Visitor Center. Along with the quilt show, the Duvall Cultural Commission sponsored an afternoon  of music in the Visitor Center. Musical groups included Tonal Recall with Betsy and Gerry, followed by Tinkham Road with Bob Antone.
