“Patches of Blue” is the 2018 Opportunity Quilt. The blue toile fabric in the setting triangles served as the basis for the quilt’s blue accents used throughout the quilt. At the same time, the white neutral background provides significant amounts of negative space to showcase the dramatic feather motifs in the beautiful longarm quilting used on this quilt.
By selecting this sampler quilt pattern contained in Karen Montgomery’s Select Six pattern book, the quilt committee was able to involve many guild members in construction of the quilt. Not only did different members complete the 12 focus blocks in the main quilt body, but other members helped complete the 192 nine-patch blocks contained in this quilt. We are grateful to all guild members who helped with a portion of the quilt. We also want to especially thank Karen Montgomery for granting permission to use her pattern as the basis for our 2018 show quilt.
The quilt will be out and about through the year at area events.
The winning ticket will be drawn at our quilt show on Saturday, September 29, 2018, at 3:30 PM.
