The Piece Quilters World

Escapades & adventures of a diverse group of quilters who’ve come together in the spirit of sharing & quilting

Another Quilt Show this year! July 9, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — willowwind @ 7:40 pm

The Piece Quilters have been asked to do a second show in the fall. The minister at the church where the spring show was held was so impressed by it that he’s asked us to do another this fall during our local fall festival held the first weekend in October, specifically October 3rd, on Saturday. Don’t have the specific times yet, but I assume it will be the same as the spring show, 10 am till 4 pm & free admission. I’ll post more specifics as we get them.

Our little guild has increased in size since that spring show too. We’re over 25 members total. One left due to family illness but she’s promised to return once her schedule thins out a bit.

We’re also busy with classes & field trips this summer. Local quilt artist, Sheril Drummond will teach a class on stained glass applique late in July. we have a class in paper peicing scheduled in August. We plan on going to the Berea, Ky Quilt Fest on August 1st. In years past this particular show was very interesting, but the weather was terribly hot. Check with the Berea, Ky chamber of commerce, parks & recreation dept. for details.

Since we only meet twice a month through the summer, things have been a bit scattered, since everyone is busy with the local fair, gardening & vacations. We will resume our weekly meetings in September, every Tuesday morning from 9 am – 11 am or so.

In Septermber we’re beginning an Art Quilt group for those interested. It’s a spur from the regular group since some members are interested in art quilting whereas others prefer traditional quilting. So far we have 8 or 10 of the members interested in the art quilt group. We’ll learn techniques, swap ideas and such soley on art quilting. I  think this group will meet after a regular meeting on Tuesdays, probablly once a month unless there’s need for more frequent meetings.

For now that’s all the latest news. Come to our Fall Quilt Show, Saturday, October 3, 2009 at Nicholasville Christian church basement, 200 West Maple St., Nicholasville, KY. Its about 15 minutes south of Lexington on Nicholasville Road (where else). Its not too far to go if you love quilts. In the spring we had visitors from Alabama, Mosouri (sp) and West Virginia. More to come on the show. See you there.

On Saturday, May 16,2009 we held our biggest & best show to date, over 250 quilts. A visitor said it was better than the AQS show at Paducah, in her opinion. That was quite a compliment for a local group of “average quilters. Here are some highlights of that show.

The First 2009 Meeting January 16, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — willowwind @ 5:59 pm

On Tuesday, Jan. 13, we held our first meeting of the new year. We’re still considering themes for the 2010 AQS guild challenge and we have completed and turned in the blocks from the hand piecing challenge from late last year.  The challenge was to use the blue flowered print & white fabrics to make a 12 inch finished block which was to be pieced by hand. Each participant’s name goes into for a drawing. The winner gets all the block to make into a quilt. We haven’t drawn for a  winner of these blocks yet, but we will by the end of the month. Here are the pictures of some of the blocks. 100_0139
