10am -- 4pm

Palm Springs Pavilion

401 Pavilion Way, Palm Springs, CA

 

 

The Desert Guilds Quilt Show is presented by three quilt guilds:  Cactus Sew-ables Quilt Guild, Coachella Valley Quilt Guild, and Pass Patchers Quilt Guild.  The show is a biennial event held in the even-numbered years.  It is traditionally held the first weekend in March.

 

The 2020 Desert Guilds Quilt Show is over and all packed up for two years.  Hopefully you had a chance to see it in person as it was a wonderful presentation of quilts and quilting skills not just from Coachella Valley but also from the two other guilds, Cactus Sewables and Pass Patchers, who all work together to put on this great guild show.

 

 

All three guilds have started planning for the 2024 show.  The Challenge Quilt event has been set by Challenge Chair Robert Tucker (CVQG).  It is called "Opposites Attract".  Details and entry forms are below. These are due by the February 2024 CV guild meeting.

 

The Miniature Quilts and Art Quilts Co-Chairs Elaine Bowden and Maryjayne Bradley (CSQG) have updated the information and forms and they are available below.  These are due by the February 2024 guild meeting.  If you have questions, CV members should contact Stephanie Beasley our Miniature Rep at info@cvquiltguild.org

 

We hope members of the Coachella Valley Quilt Guild have started planning their entries.  The entry form is due in January.  There is a $5 entry fee.  The event is open to all guild members. The first 40 entries will be accepted to the show. Good luck.

Main entry forms will be available September 2023.


Challenge 2024

OPPOSITES ATTRACT

 

FOUR WAYS

 

This challenge is based on use of the color wheel. Most of us are familiar with the color wheel whether we use it or not. Any way you look at it color is one of our dynamic tools when it comes to design or pleasure in achieving our end product. By limiting our palette unique challenges and results can occur. The premise is to use only two base colors with whatever and how many shades of them you choose. 

        There are 4 color options ~

 

YELLOW AND PURPLE

RED AND GREEN

BLUE AND ORANGE

And the classic opposite BLACK AND WHITE

           Note: Binding can be any color ~

 

Your design may be traditional, modern, or art.

 

To enter your quilt, download the entry form and bring it with you to your guild meeting along with the quilt in a brown/non-see through bag at your guild's February 2024 meeting.
