MVQ was well represented at the Quilters Gathering last weekend in Nashua!
Ildi Tary won a red ribbon for hand quilting [second to Linda Roy!]- quite an accomplishment. Her “New Beginnings” quilt was awarded the Jeannie Glenfield Memorial Ribbon.
Deb Kelso, Jeannie Robertson, Janet Lee Santeusanio , Cathy Harnisch, Janice Jones, Maggie Judd and Mary Ginn ,all made this year’s show a sight to behold with their entries.
And, of course, our special invitational exhibit “Seven Sisters or Sew” . Sixteen small quilts were shown as an example of our “Creative Collectivity!” This exhibit was first shown at the MVQ Quilt Show in April of 2011. The Gathering planners saw it and thus the invitation! We are proud to be a part of MVQ!

This year’s Quilter of the Year is a woman who has been a member for about ten plus years.
She has served the guild in many capacities in a very quiet gentle way. She has taught classes over the years at a local quilt shop in her area, she has shared her journey with us, she has been the guild treasurer and she has won ribbons for her quilting at many of our guilt shows. She co-chaired this year’s quilt show and our winner is Mary Ginn.
