Once again we decided to have a Challenge Quilt for our show. The rules have been established. Any quilts entered that do not follow the rules will be disqualified. So please read them carefully and get the ideas flowing for your quilt. Click here for the RULES.
The featured artist for our 2019 show has been chosen and announced! We are honored to have Carol DeGraaf as the featured artist for our show! She is a prolific precision piecer and hand quilter. She will have many award winning quilts to show us and be available to ask her lots of questions.
The raffle quilt for the 2019 quilt show is complete. It is truly stunning. It was challenging for us as a group to construct this, but we were all up to the challenge! The first workshop went amazingly well where we chose fabrics and cut the background pieces. We met at Playgirls a couple of times to continue to work on the quilt. All the sections were completed by several members at home and the whole top was completely assembled at the quilt retreat in March. The quilting has been completed and won three ribbons at the NW WA fair in Lynden in August. It won a first place blue ribbon in group category, Best of Longarm Quilting, and a Viewer's Choice award! Tickets will go on sale as early as Sept 22, 2018 for your chance to own this award winning quilt. Locations as to where to find the quilt sales will be listed here as it becomes known....so stay tuned!
