Hanging the Quilts...


Today the racks went up and most of the quilts were hung.  Long day for lots of quilters but we are on track to open Friday morning!

The quilts look great.   As always with the guild there is a wide variety of styles to see!

Hope to see you there!

Judging begins tomorrow!

Two years of planning and somehow the date still sneaks up on us!  Tonight members will be dropping off quilts at the North Augusta Activities Center so that judging can begin at 0900 Tuesday.  The show will be hung on Wednesday and Thursday so the doors can open Friday at 10!

At last count there will be 25 Bonnie Hunter inspired quilts on display...a nice number since the guild is celebrating our 25th anniversary!

10 days until the show!

Hard to believe the show is less than two weeks away!  Registration forms are in and on Monday the quilts will be turned in to the show committee.  One week from today the judge starts her job judging the quilts and awarding ribbons!  It will be a tough job...lots of beautiful quilts to choose from...

Also, the binding was finished on our 2014 Donation Quilt (photo above) that debuts at the show.  Proceeds from this quilt to to Camp Rainbow, a medical camp for children with cancer.

So plan to come on by the show on Friday the 11th or Saturday the 12th!  Times, directions, and all the logistics "stuff" is on our sidebar!

Special Exhibit at this Year's Show

"Smith Mountain"
Bonnie Hunter, and internationally known quilt teacher, was at one time a member of our quilt guild.  As part of our show this year we will have over 25 quilts made by member our guild that were inspired by Bonnie!

This will include several made during Bonnie's annual online "Quiltville Mystery Quilt," several from her published books, and some made using her scrappy "leader and ender" system.
