MTQG Quilt Show and Opportunity Quilt

2019-2020 Opportunity Quilt

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  than the last Quilt Show.. Our visitors often tell us we have succeeded in doing just that!

2020 Opportunity quilt pattern is “Dream Tree” by Terri Westberg, published in American Patchwork & Quilting, August 2015. (Terri gave us permission to use her design.  The quilt was officially appraised at $2700.00 by Gail Van Horsen of Sequim, WA. The size is 91″ x 95″.

Opportunity Quilt Makers for 2019-2020

For the safety of all, We will NOT be attending the Frontier Days Art Sale on the Square July 3,4 &5.  to sell Opportunity Quilt raffle tickets. Thanks to those that volunteered  to help with the ticket sales.
 If you have not purchased Opportunity Quilt  raffle tickets yet and want to,  please contact Kathy Hofmeister  this week and we can make arrangements to get you tickets.  We will draw the winning ticket at the Board Meeting on July 7.

2020 Quilt Show Report

After many months of planning, the MTQG 2020 Quilt Show was cancelled with a unanimous decision by the Quilt Show Committee June 25, 2020 due to safety concerns regarding the Corona virus dangerous threat to our members and attendees of the quilt show.  We were disappointed, but this was the right decision.   We will address questions in the July MTQG newsletter.
