Quilt Show 2017


 The Great Cover-Up!


Our Quilt Show theme for 2017 is “The Great Cover-Up!” – and we have a logo to promote it!  Designed by RRQ member Andrew Love, the logo pictured here will be used for advertising our show and our Guild.




 

Our 2017 quilt show, "The Great Cover-Up!", will challenge you to make a quilt with your own interpretation of the theme.  You will need to write a short story about how you interpreted the theme in designing your quilt.  Entries in the challenge category will be judged the same as in the past, but  the quilt show committee will award an additional ribbon to the entry  that we think best meets the challenge.


Our featured quilter for 2017 is Jerrie Thornton of Haughton.  The show will also include special exhibits, a silent auction, a vendor mall and, of course, quilts!  The show will be held Sept. 29 through Oct.  1 at Riverview Hall in Shreveport, LA (click for map) in conjunction with the Red River Revel Arts Festival.  Hours are Friday 10-6, Saturday 11-6 and Sunday 11-4.

Every quilter loves a good quilt show and what makes a good quilt show great is the dedication of the volunteers who put it together!  Red River Quilters produces an annual quilt show in conjunction with the Red River Revel Arts Festival.  There are lots of ways to participate:

 

·   Join the planning committee (meets monthly during the year)

·  Help with set-up/takedown the weekend of the show

·   Volunteer during the show (from “white gloving” to ticket sales to door greeters, there’s a place for your talents) 

 

And most of all, enter your quilts!  All members are encouraged to submit their quilts.  Nervous about having your work judged by a professional quilt show judge?  Simply skip reading the critique sheet.  A quilt show is really like a huge “Show & Tell”.  Think of your quilt inspiring someone else to go home and start sewing.  What better compliment could there be?
