Wanted: Beautiful, Interesting, Wacky, Colorful Quilts

Which of your quilts will you enter in our quilt show? Remember that our “Summer in the Grove” Quilt Show is a quilt show NOT a contest. So, please consider entering one of your favorite quilts to be displayed in our show. Entry forms will be available at the April meeting and should be completed and turned in by the June meeting, but the quilt itself does not have to be turned in until the July business meeting (at the latest).

Quilt Challenge

Are you working on your Nine Patch challenge quilt? There is still plenty of time to make a cute little quilt with the fabric provided to be part of our special tribute wall.

The rules are simple:

– Keep it small – a placemat, table runner, wall hanging will do.
– There must be a nine patch in some form on the quilt front.
– The challenge fabrics must be visible on the quilt front.
– Have fun and be creative.
