Description: The Rutherford Quilt Guild’s biennial quilt show will feature quilts made by guild members in a number of categories: bed quilts, large and small wall hangings, quilted wearables and miniature quilts. The quilters use both traditional and modern techniques, including hand-piecing and quilting, machine piecing and quilting, hand and machine appliqué. The guild members will also have a display of their quilted interpretations of two guild challenges: “Springtime in the Carolinas” and “3-Dimensions.” The guild’s Raffle Quilt “Springtime” will be displayed and tickets sold before the drawing at 4 pm on Saturday, April 19, 2014. The show will include over 12 vendors. The proceeds from the quilt show and raffle quilt are used to support our guild’s community efforts as a 501c(3) charity. For 2013 the guild made and donated quilts to veterans under hospice care, Carolina House Memory Care Unit, the Rutherford Cancer Center, and to Home of the Brave, a charity that distributes quilts to the families of deceased soldiers.
