Antique Quilts Welcomed

Posted on Updated on

The Quilt Show is opening space to any antique quilt a member might have.

Just let Roselie Berard know and they will be hung on Thursday along with the other quilts.

This will be a nice addition to our Show!

Silent Auction at Quilt Show

Posted on

For the third year, MVQ members will be donating small quilts to be sold at the Silent Auction booth at the Quilt Show. Fifty percent of the selling price will go to Women In Transition- our charity of the year. The maker gets the other 50%.

This year the thought was that we might include other creative items along with the quilts.

More to come on this topic as we get closer to the show!

Quilt Show Entry Clarification

Posted on Updated on

Try not to be confused with the 2 entry forms:

If you want a quilt to be judged, you must check the YES box on the form that will go to Roselie.

Then- you must fill out a separate JUDGING APPLICATION Form to be sent to Mary Ginn- this form tells the judge about your quilt and what category you want it to be judged in.

ONLY JUDGED quilts will have 2 forms- one for the booklet and one for the judge.

If you DON”T want your quilt to be judged- just to be hung in the show- Check the NO box- all the information on this form will be for the sign and the booklet.

Hope this helps.

Quilt Show 2011 News

Posted on Updated on

Quilt Show Entry Form now Online.

Copies will be available at the FEBRUARY and MARCH meetings. Deadline is March 21st.

Please enter ANY quilt you think might be finished- it is easier to delete an entry than to add one.

Judging Application Form is now online.

Copies will be at February and March meetings

Please consider having your quilt judged- the evaluation form is quite simple:

Two comment areas-

“Best Features of this Quilt are” and “Areas that most need improvement”.

It is intended to improve your quilt making skills- not to be critical. This can be a great learning tool.

Right now we are asking for ONE quilt per person to be judged. We can have up to 60 quilts- we hope to do that in the first round of applicants.

Keep Quilting!

Mary Ginn and Pat Lucey
