Members and friends, welcome to our website! We are a vibrant, friendly and varied group of almost 200 quilters and quilt artists who have been sharing quilts, talent and camaraderie for quite awhile now. We are now entering our 31st year. There are monthly meetings, most of them with special speakers, quilt related activities, show and tell, etc. We have quilt shows every other year, and lots of quilt-ins, challenges, round robins, and community service projects, along with an impressive library for our members - something for everyone! As you navigate this website, you will see some of our work, see our schedule, and share our accomplishments. If you are interested in quilting, please join us the first Thursday of the month for our Guild Meeting. We love to meet visitors and will make you feel at home!

UFOs and Paint Chip Challenges

Goodness gracious! Our UFOs are slowly coming in. This month we only had 7 quilts turned in. Does this mean we are close to finishing? Or have we gotten lazy at turning them in? This month the drawing for most quilts was won by Judy Brillhart. The drawing for turning in at least one was won by Betty Dimmitt. Come on, folks! Let's get those quilts done.

Now, to the Paint Chip Challenge quilts. We had 60 members sign up for it and we had 48 lovely quilts turned in and on display. There were four categories for winners. Best use of color, best traditional, best contemporary, and viewer's choice. Yes, each quilt had an opportunity to win and our ballot counting folks said that each quilt got at least one vote. Pictures will follow.

So, now we move on to our next "challenge" which will be the Christmas block. Are you participating?
