2. Make a Pincushion for August
Make or buy a pincushion to bring to the August meeting. All pincushions will go to the Boutque at the Quilt Show.
3. Donate an item for the Boutique
Make and donate a nice quality hand made item for sale in the boutique: check ETSY and PINTEREST for ideas, or consider a totebag or purse, hot pad, table runner, placemats, mug rugs, Christmas ornament, or other idea.
4. Prepare to bring quilt(s) for exhibit.
Attach a label and hanging sleeve. Sleeve instructions can be found using the black button above to the right. Fill out the signup sheet(required) and get a photo(optional). The button below takes you to a web page with information on entering quilts and buttons which you can use to see the entry form and print it.
4. Bring Fat Quarters for the Exchange
January – Black and/or White;
February – Pink and/or Red;
March – Greens;
April – Pastels;
May – Yellow;
June – Polka Dots;
July – Blue; and
August – Brights.
5. Sign up to volunteer
We still need an appraisal coordinator, a Quilt Angel (white gloves) coordinator and a volunteer coordinator. And of course we'll need volunteers on the Quilt Show weekend.
2017 Ultimate Challenge
The 2017 Quilt Challenge has been issued and you'll want to rise to this challenge! The challenge is based on the AQS 2017 Ultimate Guild Challenge. Assuming we have enough entries, members will select the top 8 quilts by vote. They will then be sent to AQS and will be displayed at the next Grand Rapids AQS Quilt Show. The challenge fabric, that you must use in your challenge quilt is below. For the theme and rules of the challenge use the button below.
