Quilting is alive and well in Central Illinois!
Our guild has been invited to display labors of our love in the art gallery at Normal Public Library during April, May, and June of 2020. The gallery is a rather compact and protected space near the front entrance but will allow a variety of options. Optimum sizes would be LESS than 60 X 60 inches.
Good items would be children's quilts, lap quilts, fidget quilts, projects from some of the classes such as Dresden plate, crazy quilts, paper piecing, applique, bags, modern, and others. Projects may be offered for sale if the owner wishes. Display time may be one, two, or three months depending on the number of quilts received. Forms will be available at the December meeting.
Also please bring in orphan blocks with finished edges, The edges can be bound, serged, or zigzagged. These will be hands-on "projects" that visitors may touch. These can be brought in at any time.
This is the first time the Normal Library will display fiber art, and we want this to be equal to the usual FANTASTIC quilt show for which our guild is known.
Please feel free to contact me by phone or email—the numbers are in the Membership directory—if there are any questions.
