We love show and tell! Our members bring quilts, both old and new, to our meeting to display and tell bits of information about how they were made or for whom. Often we merely enjoy looking at others' work with awe. In either case, show and tell is one of the most popular portions of our guild meeting.

Mountain Stars Opportunity Quilt 2014
Judi has a wonderful story to share about wanting to win this quilt. She lives at Mountain Star Ranch and the view from where the quilt will reside is of Mt. Ashland. Judy purchased tickets to win the quilt from Cottage Quilts in the Harry & David Center and went back to Cottage Quilts to purchase more tickets and the shop didn't have the quilt on display because "Passing Fancy" was out at the Master Gardeners Spring Fair at the Expo. Judi tracked the quilt down at the fair and purchased more tickets. It was meant to be that this beautiful quilt found such a great home. The quilt was made by members of the guild, the pieced blocks and the needleturn hand applique. The pattern designer is Kim Diehl. We had extra blocks so the creative extra border was added as a special touch. The quilt is 82" X 82" and machine quilted by Nan McVay.
Our 2015 Opportunity quilt will debut on September 13, 2014 at the guild meeting. It is a special purchase quilt made by the Jacksonville Museum Quilters. You will see names on the back label of quilters who help found our guild. The quilt is all hand applique and quilted. It is Hawaiian "Breadfruit" and measures 86" square. It was appraised for $4500.00 so it will be a treasure to win. Information about tickets will be announced at the September 13 guild meeting..
