Quail Country Quilters presents our biennial quilt show "A Covey of Quilts IV." The dates are Friday, Oct. 18, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 19, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Stonehenge is this year's raffle quilt and will be on display during the show. Tickets are $1 or 6 for $5 and can be purchased at the show. The top was donated to the guild and professionally quilted by Debbie Statton of Payson. The size is a large queen 106-by-90 inches. The pattern, colors and quilting make it a stunning quilt. Winners need not be present.
This show will be held at Cottonwood Middle School at 500 E. Mingus Ave. in Cottonwood. Take 89A and 260 to Main Street and go west to Mingus Avenue. Cottonwood Middle School is located just beyond the Post Office. Park either in front or back of the school and proceed to the gymnasium. Watch for directional signs.
They have over 180 entries that include a wide variety of bed quilts, small quilts, wall hangings, and wearable art. Many quilts include traditional patterns and many are original designs. Techniques such as machine pieced, appliqué quilting and hand pieced, appliqué quilting are represented. There will be much to delight viewers as they walk through the show.
In addition to the show there will be a boutique of many hand crafted items made by guild members for sale. QCQ has held many workshops the past two years to make interesting and unusual items and this year they will have many quilts of various sizes to sell. There will be vendors selling various items from their stores. Come and do some Christmas shopping.
