West Sound Quilters 2009 Quilt Show: Quilts from the Cabin
October 23-25, 2009; 10a-5pm Fri & Sat, Sun 10a-4pm
The show is held at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds, 1200 NW. Fairgrounds Road, Bremerton, WA, 98311.
This year’s show features local artist and West Sound Quilters guild member Delaine Gately.
The event will also host harpist Bronn Journey who will be performing 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The quilt show will include vendors, demonstrations, quilt turning, wearable art, community build-a-block, and a guild constructed raffle quilt.
Guild members may participate in the quilt challenge, “Quilts from the Cabin” features a log cabin quilt challenge. Members may submit entries for: Best “Scrappy” Quilt; Best “Wacky” Quilt; Most Creative Use of Log Cabin Blocks; Best Contemporary; Best Traditional; Best Hand Quilted and Best Mixed Techniques. Mixed techniques include use of machine or hand-pieced
blocks, appliqué, embroidery techniques, etc., which enhance the overall design of the log cabin quilt. The finished quilt must still “read” as a log cabin quilt. The Best of Show for the Log Cabin Quilt Challenge will be awarded only to a quilter who constructed the quilt top and who does the machine or handing quilting.
Members from the West Sound Quilters are also selling raffle tickets for their annual raffle quilt individually and at area businesses between now and the show. Be sure to get a ticket from a guild member, because every home needs a log cabin quilt!
