Rocky Mountain Creative Quilts ’08 Calendar

Who knew that starting a brand new quilt guild could be this fun? Up here in Northern Colorado a few of us got together and decided that we needed a guild focused on art and contemporary quilting, one that was geographically feasible to get to on those cold, snowy winter nights that we experience from time to time. We sent out a call to see if there was enough interest and the response has been phenomenal. We now have 47 paid members, and we are still in the organizational stage! Volunteers to hold board positions and do committee work such as the quilt show, hospitality, facilities, programs and all the myriad tasks that a guild has to do have been in enthusiastic supply. We realized that first we needed to raise some funds. Our amazing president, Stephanie Patterson, organized and held a Quilter’s Garage Sale last month and took in $1,400! Kelly Gallagher-Abbott and I worked hard on putting together a 5.5 x 5″ desktop calendar that comes in its own display case, and features 14 Northern Colorado artists. (Edited, printed and published by the multi-talented Kelly, I might add.) It is available for purchase at: jukeboxquilts

The cover quilt, A New Dawn, is by our wonderful local (and rapidly becoming nationally known) artist Melody Randol.
