Our guild was founded in 1999 and our members include beginners through experts, with interests from art quilts to traditional quilts in an array of materials. Our purpose is to share a love of quilts and quilt making. We also sponsor seminars, exhibitions, workshops, and community service projects.
Thanks to Olga Schrichte of Frederick, MD, for the image of "The Spires of Frederick," above, which she designed and created in August 2015.
We meet on the first Thursday of each month, 6 p.m., at the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center, 40 S Carroll St, Frederick, MD
Next meeting: October 4, 2018
Challenge Quilt Presentation and
Presentation of Our Quilt of Valor
Our October meeting will be both patriotic and spooky!
Community Service 2018 – We will have representatives from both of our projects this year – a recipient of our Quilt of Valor, a speaker from the DAR, and an administrator from Ballenger Creek Center – to receive our donations. (Don't forget to bring your dresser runners, lap quilts, etc. for Ballenger Creek.) We will do this as the first item of business. Each will give a short talk and we’ll take photographs for The Frederick NewsPost.
Guild Challenge 2018 – we hope you’re finishing up your Halloween “quilt” project to compete with the guild challenge (not to be confused with the brown bag round robin challenge) in time for the competition. Final reminder of the rules and plans:
· 1. Your entry must have a Halloween theme (not Thanksgiving or just fall colors).
· 2. It cannot be a costume.
· 3. It has to be 3 layers (top, batting, backing), with some quilting.
That’s it! There are no size, fabric, or shape restrictions, nor what kind of item it must be. Quilts, wall quilts, table runners, placemats, tote bags, purses, vests/jackets, door/wall hanging, etc..
There will be 3 prizes to the top vote getters: $75, $50 and $25.
And finally, Rod Koozmin will attend our October 4th meeting to sharpen scissors. Cost is $7 a pair, salon scissors are more expensive. Put a few scraps with your scissors so he can test them. You’ll drop them off to a designated room when you arrive.
As you can see, our Ocotber Meeting is one you do not want to miss! See all of you on the fourth of October!
