CATTAILS IN THE MEADOW

Our beautiful opportunity quilt was made from the pattern “Cattails in the Meadow” by Judy and Bradley Niemeyer at Quiltworx.  It measures 72” x 72”, and includes paper piecing and hand appliqué.  Fabrics are all batiks, front and back.  The makers include Foothill Guild members Barbara Sammut, Terry Harman, Claudine Matulich, Donna Griess, Pat Van Artsdalen, and Carol Vierra.  It was quilted by Brandy Rayburn at The Quilting Place in Fair Oaks; Brandy has quilted many, many Neimeyer quilts, including quite a few for Judy Niemeyer herself, used at the Houston quilt market.

We will sell tickets to win this quilt throughout the year and draw the winner at our quilt show, on April 6, 2019.  You need not be present to win.

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.
