Copper Country Quilters Continue Excellence in Quilting Throughout 2010

Fri, Jun 25th, 2010
What have the Copper Country Quilters been up to since their quilt show in February? A lot, starting with planning our opportunity quilt for the 2012 quilt show. Guild member Audrey Longhurst took on the task of coordinating all the fabrics for the quilt and other members helped with cutting and sewing. It will be a beautiful quilt and tickets go on sale in September at the Gila County Fair.Guild members Lynn, Ruth, Karen and Sandy show off their ‘almost done’ bags.

Guild members have been busy with either teaching or attending classes. Audrey and Sally and Jan took advantage of an appliqué class from national teacher Sara Ann Smith, hosted by Kearny’s Copper Thimbles guild through the Arizona Quilters Guild Q.U.I.L.T program. Sara was the keynote speaker at the AQG Spring meeting in Flagstaff, which was attended by guild members Ursula Radike and Jan Pederson.

Our guild invited AQG traveling teacher Barbara Polston to present her class “Throw in the Towel” to the members. We had great participation and some very successful l projects. Sally Hatfield pictured here with Barbara taught a tote bag class which was also a lot of fun.

Multi-talented Audrey put together a class on dying fabric in March. Fifteen guild members participated and at the end of the day each member had over three yards of hand dyed fabric.

The Copper Country Quilters along with the Copper Thimbles from Kearney and the Queen Valley Scrap Rats are planning the 2011 AQG Spring meeting which will be held here in Globe.

As a community service project, Copper Country Quilters have agreed support G.I.L.A. House. This is community organization for families that have to leave their home temporarily due to fire or other circumstances. We are making quilts for the beds and also to give to the families as they leave the residence.
