Let’s take this show on the road!
- 2017 Officers Tamara and Tania are organizing a special exhibit of all of the quilts created for PMQG Word Quilts - starting in Portland and then, hopefully, traveling on to other parts of the country
- If you have a completed #PMQGSpeaks2017 quilt (or can have one finished by July 16th), contact Tamara and Tania through the Guild email firstname.lastname@example.org
In 2017 we participated in a year long quilt challenge, Word Quilts, led by Meredith Hobbs. Members were encouraged to choose their word, words or phrase -- motto, mantra, song lyrics, scripture, political statement -- and design a unique piece to reflect their own sensibilities. Meredith introduced a new topic or technique at our monthly Guild meetings.
PMQG's theme for our Special Exhibit at the 2018 Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show is Words, Unbound.
