The Farmer House Museum and Bellevue Gallery will present a quilt sale and exhibit from 12:30 to 1 p.m. March 1 to 3 during the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show. The show will have quilts made by partners and quilters Sandra Andersen and Barb Sturbaum. 

An evening reception for the show will take place from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. March 2.

The Indiana Heritage Quilt Show is an annual event that presents quilt showings, contests and vendors every spring in Bloomington. Participants can enter quilt competitions, attend workshops and see exhibits.

Andersen took up quilting in 1980, and Sturbaum began in 1990. Since then, the partners has built up a collection of quilts, bought machines, taken classes and studied quilts extensively. 

“Barb likes traditional patterns, but enjoys modern fabrics as well as historical styles,” according to the SandBar Quilts press release. “Sandra is the more contemporary quilter of the pair and is also an avid machine quilter.”

SandBar Quilts formed when, a year ago, Andersen and Sturbaum wanted to form a partnership to sell their accumulated quilts. Now, SandBar has an Etsy website where it sells quilts and wall hangings.
