A Call for Quilts

Remember the 2009 Choo Choo "A Page from my Journal" Guild Challenge? It was a collection of small format quilts that portrayed a special person, place, or event in a quiltmaker's life through the use of fabric, stitches and trims. Here are two of the quilts from the Challenge.
On October 30, there is another opportunity to share these and other quilts—and their stories—in a quilt show called "Every Quilt Has a Story," sponsored by the Hixson Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Stars. Any quilt of any size will be accepted into the show. This is a non-juried and non-judged exhibit. There is no quilt entry fee to display your quilts.

Let's share our quilts and their stories!
Guild members who would like to include their 2009 Challenge quilt in a group display should send an e-mail to:

Guild members and anyone else with other quilts they would like to have in the show should see the quilt show information below.
