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

2020 Quilt Show Challenge 

Did you know that the 19​th Amendment giving women the right to vote was approved by the US Senate June 4​th​, 1919 and was officially certified on August 26, 1920? (2/3 of the states were required to ratify the amendment). 2020 will be the 100 year anniversary of women having the right to vote! Lets celebrate with a quilt challenge! Kristi and Susan are asking for small quilts to be submitted for display at the 2020 Visions of Quilts show. We are defining small as having a perimeter of roughly 80 inches (which is 20×20 if it’s square- though there is no shape no requirement). If the quilt is a little bigger (or a lot bigger) it’s okay. There will be a separate category in the registration form that will be available in February. We haven’t figured out how to judge the challenge quilts yet- we’ll keep you posted. We hope this inspires some of you to get creative and make a quilt to celebrate women’s suffrage.

 

The 2020 Quilt Show will be held at Findlay Toyota Center on June 5th and 6th. The Theme is “2020: Visions of Quilts”.
