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.  
If you want a zoom view of a single slide, click on the slide.
Be sure to click on Quilts of Valor  and you'll see quilts made for Quilts of Valor here in SW Oregon and recipients of those quilts. Cindy Roche' is the SW Oregon Regional Coordinator and she shares Quilts of Valor at Show and Tell.

Winner is local
Mountain Stars Opportunity Quilt 2014  
"Passing Fancy" has a winner!  Her name is Judi Scranton from Ashland Oregon.
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.

Once upon a time . . . the very talented quilters from the Jacksonville Museum Quilters Guild set out to make unique quilts, each with a story to tell about the inhabitants and early history of the Rogue Valley.  Many years later the collection found itself without a home.  Ultimately, the historical quilt collection was donated to the Jackson County Genealogy Library (JCGL) where the quilts are displayed in the reading room at the Library.

One of the objectives of the JCGL Quilt Committee is to focus on the relationship of quilts to family history and genealogy.  Toward that end, we will continue the series of “Quilts and Genealogy” talks from September 2014 to June 2015.  These talks are given on the fourth Tuesday each month (except for December) at 1:30 pm at JCGL.  A complete schedule of the topics, presenters and pictures of the featured quilts will be available later this summer.

 Jackson County Genealogy Library 3405 South Pacific Highway, Medford Oregon.

New talk - September 23, 2014 at 1:30 pm.
