The opportunity quilt was entered in the Road to California quilt show in Ontario, CA & we received word it won 3rd Place in the Traditional, Large, Applique Category! This is a big show and winning an award is not easy, so we are proud & excited! The judge’s comments were: Beautiful quilting, gold stitching in border effective, great selection of fabrics in flowers, beautiful embroidery.
Tickets are available for this beautiful opportunity quilt “Walk on the Wild Side” at the PAC office or from SMQ members ($1/each or $5/6 tickets).
Our donations have been geared to winter lately with scarves, hats, socks & gloves, as well as quilts & pet beds.
