Airing a Success!

We had a lovely night for Airing of the Quilts. People were stopping on the street in front of Lonita’s to look, and at least one family parked and walked the fence.

Challenge Quilt Sleeves

Those of you working on challenge quilts for the 2013 show will need to sew on a sleeve and it needs to be the sleeve AQS uses in order for our quilts to be considered for the AQS Ultimate Guild Challenge. The 2011 Challenge quilts are at AQS now and Barb Hamernik feels strongly we will be accepted again this year – a testament to the skill in our guild.

Written instructions can be found under the Quilt Tab on the right side of the page.

Here is a video link to directions:

More Congratulations!

Karen Kielmeyer won first place at the Machine Quilters Showcase at Overland Park, Kan. This blue ribbon was for Purple Grace. Some of you may have heard the story of this lovely quilt. Karen was blocking the quilt and pink silk she had used bled onto adjacent fabric. She cut the FINISHED quilt in two and reworked it.Now that takes guts! Congrats to Karen!!

Airing of Quilts is May 24

Map to Airing of the Quilts


Quilters United in Learning Together will host the annual “Airing of the Quilts” for their May 24 meeting.
Weather permitting, quilters will display their work along the rail fence at 3302 W. Perry Road in Rogers, near Target and Pinnacle Hills Promenade.
The roots of airings go deep in American’s history. Pioneer women would take their utilitarian quilts outside to air after a long winter.
The meeting begins at 6 p.m., and members and their guests are asked to bring a side dish, place setting and a chair. Those displaying quilts are reminded to bring something to put under the quilt in order to protect them.
Visitors are welcome to drive by and look at the colorful display.
QUILT’s regular meetings are the fourth Thursday of the month, except in May and November and December when the meetings are combined on the first Thursday of December. Meetings are at the Springdale Holiday Inn, 1500 S. 40th St., at 7 p.m.
