Enjoy the show!
Kristin and Elizabeth took a turn as greeters!

Our traveling quilt display was sponsored by the 440 Quilt Shop.
Five members completed their traveling quilts in time for the show. As explanation, traveling quilts started with a member providing a block and some guidelines that could range from very loose to very restrictive. Each month the quilt passed to a new member who would then add a block and pass it on next month until the quilt came back to the member who started it. Each member then had the fun of putting their quilt pieces all together. These are the results.
Lisa’s on the right.

Because we don’t use drapes behind our quilts for the show, we get this wonderful effect of seeing many quilts at once.
If you have any questions about our show or any of the individual quilts, just contact us!
We have a few members who sew clothes in additional to quilts.
Tarra loves to sew clothes for herself and for her family. She’s wearing one of her dresses and she displayed several of the ones she’s made for herself and for her daughter.
Dyanne made the patchwork jacket below.
And then it was over!
We hope you’ve enjoyed the show and that you’ll plan to come to our 2018 show.
