ITHACA, N.Y. — Tompkins County Quilters Guild reminds local quilters that July 28 is the last day to enter quilts in its 2017 Traditions and Beyond quilt show, scheduled for October 7 and 8, 2017, at the Tompkins Cortland Community College. The guild invites all quilters to submit their work for the show through an online entry system at http://www.tcqg.org/entries.html.
(Paper entries are acceptable; visit the website to learn how to find a paper entry form.) A small entry fee of $15 ($10 for guild members) covers the entry cost of four quilts, three pieces of wearable art, and four pieces of soft sculpture, for a maximum of 11 items per exhibitor.
The Traditions and Beyond quilt show will showcase traditional and modern quilts, as well as wearable art and soft sculpture; host a book sale and vendors mall; and include the Second Hand Rose Boutique, where attendees can purchase used quilts, wearable art, and quilting books and magazines. A highlight of the show is the drawing for our raffle quilt, Garden Sanctuary, a queen-sized quilt that was machine-pieced and hand-appliquéd by members of the guild. Andrea Gibb designed the quilt’s block, Tracy McLellan designed the appliquéd flowers, and Lorraine Benjamin of the Tangled Thread designed and created the quilting; all three women are guild members.
For more information or to purchase raffle tickets for the quilt, contact any guild member, visit www.tcqg.org, or call Karen Kindle at 607-793-5798.
