Flutter By My Garden
This is the year for my guild, the CT Piecemakers, bi-annual quilt show. Once again I took on the challenge of leading the raffle quilt design team. I increased the number of people on my design team from 4 to 8 members. It was definitely a challenge but it helped us to create a beautiful quilt design. I liken it to trying to herd a group of cats into one place.
The proceeds from the raffle of this quilt will benefit the following charities; ASRC– Autism Spectrum Resource Center, Norma Pfriem Cancer Institute, Habitat for Humanity, St. Vincent’s SWIM Across the Sound & the Girl Scouts of CT Camperships.
If you’re within driving distance you should come out and join us. The dates for the show are is Saturday April 16, 2016 from 10:00 AM—5:00 PM and Sunday April 17, 2016 from 10:00 AM—4:00 PM. It will be held at the Crown Plaza Hotel, 1284 Strongtown Rd., Southbury, CT 06488.
There will be over two hundred quilts on display. Over a 100 of those were judged this past Monday. Besides the raffle quilt, we will have a SAQA exhibit, vender mall, raffle baskets, quilt appraisals, demonstrations and a bargain boutique.
I’ll have a bunch of my quilts on display. I entered quilts that were published in a number of well-known quilting magazine. Also on display will be a few quilts that I designed in collaboration with my friend Janice Roy. You will have the chance to see “Psyche-Dahlia”, our Hoffman challenge 2015 entry and “Zen Lily”, which was a finalist in the New Quilts from Old Favorites Carolina Lily challenge.
I hope to see you there! I’ll be at the show both days.
