2018 Raffle Quilt, stay tuned for your opportunity to purchase a ticket to be entered to win this beautiful quilt!

Thanks to many guild members who helped piece and appliqué the top and to Woodside Quilting for donating the back. The quilting was done by guild member Rod Turner – it is spectacular!

Treasured Quilt Special Exhibit
“Shining Stars through the Ages”

For our 2018 Quilt Show, we have combined two exhibits from previous shows, The Special Exhibit and The Treasured Quilts.  Our new exhibit will be the Treasured Quilt Special Exhibit and we’re seeking your participation to make it extra special.   “Shining Stars through the Ages” will feature all kinds of star quilts: big stars, little stars, Ohio Stars, Dolly Madison Stars, Lone stars and many more.

We would like you to share a special star quilt you have for our new September Quilt Show which will be held at the Iowa State Fairgrounds at the end of September.  Please look through your collections, new quilts and antique quilts, and select one to share at our show.  As quilters we know there is usually a special story that comes with each shared quilt.  We ask you to include your story along with a picture of the quilt.

Download the PDF registration form here, fill it out and email it to Leighlussie@hotmail.com or  ellenwkelly@hotmail.com or you can print and mail it.
We are looking forward to your participation in the Treasured Quilt Special Exhibit. Please contact us if you have any questions.
