Evening Star


This lovely quilt was our short-tem Opportunity Quilt given away at our 2022 Quilt Show in October.


The quilt top was made by Foothill member Mona Wooden, using antique handkerchiefs for block backgrounds and sashed with 30’s reproduction fabrics.  She created and appliquéd butterflies in the blocks and along the edges.  The beautiful custom quilting was done by Beth Handy.  


The quilt measures approximately 90” x 110”.


We will sell tickets all year.  The winning ticket will be drawn at our general meeting on October 9, 2023.


For more information, see our Opportunity Quilt page.

OUR PURPOSE

The purpose of the Foothill Quilters Guild is to contribute to the growth and knowledge of quilting techniques, patterns, history and quilt-making by providing educational meetings; sponsor and support quilt-making activities; encourage quilt-making and collecting; and promote the knowledge and appreciation of quilting.
