February 22 & 23, 2019





We are having a star studded event to celebrate our 25th Annual Quilt Gala!  Not surprising, stars appear in more American quilts than any other design.  There are favorites like the Variable Star, Lemoyne Star, Sawtooth Star, Feathered Star or the Friendship Star, just to name a few.  Your wallhanging may have a heavenly host of stars if you wish, but it must include at least one recognizable eight-pointed star.  Be creative!   Use any color palette or technique you like, make it traditional or contemporary.  It's up to you! Remember Casey Kasem's signature sign-off. . ."Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars."  It applies to quilting too!
