June Meeting -- Saturday, June 9

Ten of the Guild's thirteen Friendship Groups came together on Saturday, June 9, 2018 to share what they were doing and to invite others to join them.  There was talking and sharing and talking and refreshments and more talking.  It is always wonderful to meet other quilters!

See you on Saturday, September 8 for our meeting on the Quilts of Valor Foundation.  Have a great summer!


Bus Trip to M & L Fabrics -- Cancelled

Due to lack of participation and our inability to fill the bus, we must cancel the trip.  We might try again in the fall when the snowbirds are back.

Have quilt related items you would like to donate?? Please contact Pene Owens.  Your donations will help support our guild's mission to promote and share the art of quilting.


QUILTS FOR RONALD MACDONALD CAMP 

 

Mary French and Linda Blake from the guild's friendship group Quilting For Good Times, La Quinta, gave out three quilts to children at the Ronald MacDonald Camp in Idyllwild.  


DESERT GUILDS QUILT SHOW

 

It is always amazing to see what wonderful talent there is not only in our guild, Coachella Valley Quilt Guild, but also in the other two guilds, Cactus Sewables and Pass Patchers, that we do the show with.  On March 2nd and 3rd it was all on display -- from traditional to modern to art quilts to miniatures and of course the challenge -- "Off the Beaten Path".  Members of the various guilds as well as the general public enjoyed not only the quilt displays but the variety of vendors that were at the show.  Our next show will be in March 2020 so watch for details about that show. 

VIEWER'S CHOICE

 

Everyone at the show got to vote for their favorite Showcase Quilt, Challenge Quilt, Miniature Quilt and Miniature Ary Quilt.  This year Coachella Valley Quilt Guild member Pat Siegel won the Viewer's Choice for Showcase Quilt with her English paper-pieced quilt "Passing Time".  Congratulations, Pat!!
