2017 Quilt Show

The most recent quilt show from Quilters by the Sea was held in April, 2017. More than 10% of net proceeds go to charity. Congratulations to our 2017 Viewers’ Choice Award winners!

Quilters by the Sea presented our “Spring into Quilts” quilt show on April 22 and 23, 2017.  The quilt show included 100 plus quilts, vendors, demonstrations of various quilting techniques, raffle baskets, boutique table, and a silent auction.

Here is a list of our vendors along with their websites if you would like to visit them:

Quilters by the Sea Quilt Guild’s two Advocacy Project Quilts were on display. These quilts represented an international collaboration with women refugees from the conflicts in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East who have sought refuge in Amman, Jordan, under the auspices of the Advocacy Project.    The artists worked as a cooperative, the Hope Workshop, to produce the embroidery with support from the Collateral Repair Project, an organization that assists refugees and other victims of war and conflict in Amman.  Quilters by the Sea members stitched the embroidered pieces into quilt blocks and then pieced and quilted the two finished quilts.
