Special Quilt Exhibits
Endangered Species Quilt Exhibit
The quilts on display vividly depict a variety of species of plants and animals ranging from the Longleaf Pine and the Cuban Painted Snail to the Elk and the African Elephant. Many of these species are placed in exquisitely detailed renderings of their environments.
The sixty quilts represent just a small selection of those featured in an upcoming book, Inspired by Endangered Species: Animals and Plants in Fabric Perspectives, highlighting the works of fiber artists. Author Donna Marcinkowski DeSoto maintains an extensive and growing database of highly talented fiber artists from both the United States and throughout the world, and periodically “puts out a call” for work which reflects a chosen topic, in this case inspired by frequent news reports about endangered species.
Quilt Con Special Exhibit
The MQG developed out of the thriving online community of modern quilters and their desire to start meeting in person. The founding guild was formed in Los Angeles in October 2009. Through blogs and the Internet, word spread quickly of the fun they were having and soon guilds starting popping up everywhere. The MQG is a nonprofit corporation with IRS 501c3 status.
The Modern Quilt Guild is made up of more than 14,000 members and more than 200 guilds around the world.

Stitched With Love Quilt Exhibit
I’ve always told my children and grandchildren that quilts are “stitched with love” and you can feel that love wrap around you anytime you use them. Quilts are also a legacy that you pass down from generation to generation and treasure because of the memories it brings. This exhibit is a sampling of my legacy and my journey through quilting.
Quilting is constantly changing and moving in new directions as new techniques and ideas surface. My goal is to create and pattern new quilts which I can share with others. Exploring new techniques and ideas has always been my passion in quilting. I like to challenge myself and extend my boundaries. My focus is often on the actual color palette and my love of applique. I have just as much fun planning a quilt as I do actually making it. I’ve enjoyed incredible support from my family and friends in my journey and I want to say thank you.
Simply said, color makes me happy.

Essentially Eclectic Quilt Exhibit
In the world of quilt-making, Nancy Roberts is addicted to four things: color, tedious processes, diversity, and needlework. Although Civil War reproduction fabrics are her favorite go-to’s, she often uses brights like Kaffe, 30’s reproductions, and “sweet” fabrics like Fig Trees. Her display will highlight many quilting processes in addition to tradition piecing, such as applique, embroidery, both traditional and English paper piecing, and yoyo’s. Her motto is, “The more different fabrics I can get into a quilt and the more time and intricacy it takes to make it, the better!” -Nancy Roberts
To Provence And Back Quilt Exhibit
This quilt appeared in Quiltmania July-August 2015 issue and the moment I saw the picture, I knew I had to make this quilt. It was designed by WattleBird Designs but I changed the methods and steps in constructing this eye-catching quilt. This is one of my favorite quilts–all needle-turned applique, each block has up to five layers. I started the quilt in Spring 2017 and finished July 2018. -Yvonne Carte
Wild Rose Quilt Exhibit
Inspiration is all around. I find it in nature, a rose covered tea cup that belonged to my mom, a favorite blouse, a beautiful piece of fabric or the work of other sewists…I hope you will find some inspiration of your own in my quilts. -Aniva
Passionate Journey of a Young Quilter Exhibit
I started quilting when I was 11 years old. Thanks for a mother that took me to the fabric store and taught me as she also was learning and jumping into the world of fabric and sewing machines. Follow along as I share how quilting has shaped and changed the life that I now live. -Kaitlyn Howell
