Each year, a traveling quilt is sold during Saturday's auction at 12 p.m. The theme of the 2015 Traveling Quilt is peace. This quilt continues to travel around North America raising awareness about peace and MCC projects.

It was created by Marlys Wiens and Diane Swallen, of Minneapolis. Individuals around the world were asked to make a peace block. The blocks are surrounded by blue nautical fabric with oceans and directions listed on the fabric. The traveling quilt (Peace Quilt) was quilted by the MCC Quilt Room at the Material Resources Center in Ephrata, under the direction of Connie Lapp.

Last year's traveling quilt raised $4,950. \n
