Amelia Mills, 92, Pequot Lakes, will celebrate her birthday at a luncheon from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday at First Baptist Church in Baxter.
Mills, who is known by many as the "Quilt Queen," has been making quilts since she was 57, said her son, Ken Mills, Sheboygan, Wis.
Her son and daughter, Peggy Anderson, Motley, will host the event. They hope the hundreds of people who own one of their mother's quilts will attend the party for her Sunday and have their photos taken with her.
Mills lives at Country Care Homes in Pequot Lakes and has been disabled since she was struck by a creamery truck when she was about 40, said her son. She can no longer walk, but still makes about four quilts a month.
"How she can sit in front of a sewing machine six hours at a time beats me," said Ken Mills.
Mills was born near New Ulm but lived most of her life in Pequot Lakes and Brainerd. Her husband, Vernon, was killed in 1998 in an accident involving an untrained horse.
Mills' birthday was March 23.
