Southern California Council of Quilt Guilds had a special exhibit at Road to California Quilt Show commemorating the show's 20th anniversary. Every quilt had to have a connection to the show through a technique learned at the show, fabric or kit purchased at the show, etc. Two of our membership quilts that were displayed -- Mary Gorfine -- Lake at Dusk -- and Robert Tucker -- Riding the Rails. Congratulations on your wonderful entries.
Cheryl Quesnell -- Soar!
Helen Anderson -- Around the Garden

DATE FESTIVAL 2019 BEST OF SHOW WINNER
Guild member Roberta Peterson won best of show at the Riverside County Date Festival in February of this year. Congratulations, Roberta!
Each year the guild encourages members to enter quilts, quilted items or other handcrafts in our local county fair. The display of handicrafts is wonderful to see. We also display our yearly Opportunity Quilt and talk to members of the public about quilting as we sell tickets to win the quilt. A number of our past winners have purchased their tickets at the Date Festival.
