Our Silicon Valley Chapter issued a challenge for their 4th Anniversary. Each member had to incorporate this colorful tropical fish fabric in her design.
About three dozen quilts were made, each one flashier and more creative than the next.
What would you do with this fabric?
A HUGE thank you to David Mancuso and the Mancuso show staff.
The quilt show at Oaks, PA, was a huge success!
Many quilters came along to put some stitches of love into the 5 quilts that were made during the show. Bernina and the Hayes store in Delaware came to our rescue and donated two NEW sewing machines for us to use for the the entire show.
They were a big hit and everyone loved sewing on them.
Who would think of challenging a modern quilt guild to make quilts for children?
Ila Geving, Chapter Leader of our Lincoln, NE, Chapter, that's who! She did a presentation to the Omaha Modern Quilt Guild, and they went out of their way to make quilts to donate and took them up on their challenge, to design a "modern" style quilt for kids. The winner would receive a $25.00 gift card and their design would be used to make kits for our Lincoln Chapter of Quilts for Kids.
"It was lots of fun and so hard to narrow the winner down to just one, but we did, Ila writes. "The winning design was made by MaryAnn Morris!"
Criteria included were...it had to fit into the "Modern" category; it had to be kit cutting friendly, while boasting the least amount of fabric waste; it had to take into consideration ...
Thanks to Fox 29 for covering our 15th Anniversary. We appreciate their commitment to community and their willingness to get the word out about our effort to comfort children in need.
Our friends at the Bucks County Courier Times also shot a wonderful video of the celebration.
Once again, Quilts for Kids is delighted to have ten quilts on display at the Bucks County Visitor Center's 11th Annual Quilt show. The free show runs through September 30th and is open Monday to Sunday from 9:00 to 5:00 at the Bucks County Visitor Center, 3207 Street Road in Bensalem, PA.
