Quilting In The Highlands



This is the 2017 Opportunity Quilt.  The winner will be chosen at the show.  Members, please be sure to get your package of tickets to sell for this fund raiser.


How to prepare your quilt prior to dropping it off……

You need to cover your label with a piece of fabric by basting without knotting the thread. This way after it has been judged we can remove the covering easily before it goes on display, but during judging no one knows who the quilt belongs to.

Use a 3 x 5 card and write on it the name of your quilt, your name and phone number, also the category. Put this card into a zip lock bag and pin to the open area of the pillowcase (use regular size pillowcase except if you have a large quilt then you can use the king size pillowcase). Fold your quilt so the covered label is at the open area of the pillowcase. We will check this when you drop off your quilt and if the label has not been covered you will have to stitch a cover over the label.

All quilts must be clean, free of pet hair and fresh smelling. No smoking smell please.
