There will be not one, but two challenges for you to enjoy this year. The first is the Art Quilt Challenge, which is sure to feature a variety of embellished works of art. The second is a fabric challenge, where members must create a quilt or needlework entry using all of the one-half yard piece of fabric they received, so look for this challenge featuring the same fabric in a variety of projects. These challenges will be displayed in groups and you will have the opportunity to vote for your favorite.
This year’s Opportunity Quilt is named “Crossroads.” Tickets are $1 each or $5 for 6 and may be purchased from a member of the Shadow Mountain Quilters or at the show. The 105″ x 105″ quilt and matching pillow shams were quilted by Darla Holt. A custom quilt rack was made by Mike Cosgrove to accompany the quilt. All of this can be yours!
As you plan your visit to our Quilt & Fiber Arts Show, please note the attached lodging options in Pahrump.
