Quilts in the Aspens Show Scheduled for Aug. 14

Quilt show at the Milwaukie Senior Center, March 20, 2010

The 15th annual show of Woodland Park’s Quilters Above the Clouds Quilt Guild will be held Saturday, August 14 from 9am to 4pm at the Woodland Park Middle School, 600E Kelley’s Road. More than 100 quilts will be featured and ribbons awarded in several categories.


Bed quilt entries will be displayed as either small, medium or large. Wall quilts will also be categorized as small or large by their perimeter size. Art quilts are designs that are layered, stitched and originate from the creative mind of the quilter rather than from a kit, class or commercial pattern. The Etc. category runs the gamut of quilted fabric items from wearables to home décor to practical use items. Youth entries made by those aged 16 and under will be shown.


This show features a number of special exhibits. Our guild’s challenge quilts, “Where Do You Call Home,” will be on display. “From Past to Present” quilts will be displayed and are made from long forgotten fancy linens, orphan blocks or tops. A collection of vintage quilts will be lovingly shown and described in an old fashioned bed-turning. Demonstrations of quilting techniques will take place throughout the day.

Are you wondering about our guild and what we do for the community? We will have a display of our Charitable Causes quilts and information about our guild.


Quilters and sewers will have the opportunity to browse the fabrics, kits, tools and techniques offered by area quilt shops. Visitors can start their Christmas shopping early at the guild’s boutique. Also this year, guild members will have quilts of various sizes for sale.


We will have our raffle quilt, “A Moose for All Seasons,”  on display. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. Perhaps you saw this quilt hanging in Tweeds this winter and spring. It really is a show-stopper.


Admission to the all-day show is $5 for adults and children under 12 are free. Your admission ticket gives you entry into door prizes and a ballot to vote for your favorite quilt in each category.
