MTQG members participate in a guild quilt show every two years which is held in Prescott Valley, Arizona.
Quilts made by members are displayed, handmade items are for sale in the boutique, small quilts donated by members are auctioned live, and an opportunity quilt is prepared for the lucky winner whose name is drawn.
While all of this takes a great deal of time and many volunteer hours, our guild works hard to make each quilt show a little better and a bit more profitable quilt show imagethan the last. Our visitors often tell us we have succeeded in doing just that!
“Every Day is a Quilting Day” – June 3 & 4, 2016
Mountain Top Quilters Guild held a quilt show on June 3 & 4, 2016, at the Prescott Valley Event Center (formerly known as Tim’s Toyota Center). Our show theme was “Every Day Is A Quilting Day.”
There were over 350 quilts on display, terrific vendors, a members’ boutique, and an entertaining quilt turning. A small quilt auction was held on Saturday at 1:00 pm. There was a display of Row By Row quilts. Our service organization, Community Quilts, had a quilt challenge on display. Quilt appraisals were available for a fee. The winning ticket for our beautifully pieced and appliqued Opportunity Quilt, “Midnight Floral Fantasy,” was drawn at the close of the show on Saturday.
