2017 QUILT DOCUMENTATION FOR OUR MEMBERS
Sunset Slope Quilters guild along with the Colorado Quilting Council is sponsoring a Quilt Documentation event on Saturday, May 20th. This is an opportunity for our members to register their valued quilts with the Colorado Quilting Councils state registry of historical quilted projects.
Congratulations to Jackie Aguilar!
Jackie Aguilar entered this quilt in the Utah Quilting & Sewing Marketplace Show in Salt Lake City in May and won first place in the Vintage category with her beautiful piece. She even beat the Teacher of the Year, who took 2nd place.
SSQ AUCTION SCHEDULED FOR JULY 12, 2017
We had such great fun last year at our live auction that another event is planned for our July General Meeting date. As we go though our Spring Cleaning at home, we find UFO’s (unfinished projects) or supplies that we have neglected to use or gadgets that we simply can not work into our busy schedules. Donate some of these items to our auction. Someone else may find your item too tempting and will put it or them to good use. You might find an item that you cannot resist.
Come and join us following the general meeting on July 12, 2017 and have fun bidding. What’s your next great project?
