Quilt Show is 6 weeks away! It begins on Wednesday, Sept 30 and ends on
Saturday, October 3rd. We hope you all are working on putting the
finishing touches on the quilts you entered.
raffle quilt is "Petals and Pennies", a quilt adapted from a Lisa
Bongean, Primitive Gatherings pattern of the same name. We passed out
tickets at the July meeting. If you did not receive any or would like
more, we will have those available at the August & September
meetings, and at the quilt show. Tickets are $1 a piece or 6 for $5.
remember that all quilts entered in the show must have a 4" sleeve
affixed to the back of the quilt. If the quilt is greater than 90"
long, the top of the sleeve should be 90" from the bottom of the quilt.
entry tag that was generated when you entered the quilt should be in a
plastic sandwich bag, and affixed with 2 safety pins to lower right hand
corner of the back of the quilt. Each quilt should be placed in a
pillow case. Pillow cases will be available at the August and September
If your quilt(s) is judged, please drop off your
quilt(s) beginning Saturday, September 19 and no later than Thursday,
September 24th to Creekside Quilting, 9926 Swanson Blvd, Clive. If
you have entered a non judged quilt(s), please drop it off at The Quilt
Block, 325 5th St, W Des Moines, beginning Saturday, September 19, and
