Thank you to so many of you who took the time to go to the New England Quilt Museum to see the Summer Celebration of New England Quilts. The show is over and the winner of the Best in Show voting has not yet been announced but Stella Blunt’s beautiful Civil War Bride Quilt, quilted by Janet Lee
Santeusanio, was a big favorite with the viewers and garnered a great many
votes. MVQ is in the running to have our own show at the museum. Wether
we win or not, it was a beautiful effort.
Co-chairs Betty Hastings and Nancy Dempsey want to thank the people who came>and worked on the raffle table at the Mancuso show. Some people workedmultiple days and some worked multiple shifts to get the table covered. It
was well worth the effort. Bev Valley and Liz Caiado’s beautiful quilt, quilted by Carrie Zizza
Spice Mountain, drew great attention and brought in over $500. We are off
to a great start.
Kudos to Mvq members !! Quilts by Janice Jones and Carol Sullivan got ribbons at the Mancuso show in Manchester this weekend. See below. Then Stella Blunt’s beautiful quilt is at the Museum for Best Of New England Guilds and finally the great exhibit in Lowell by Broad Strokes members.
Our guild is well represented. Congrats to all these talented ladies
