Welcome to Pioneer Quilters Guild

The Pioneer Quilters Guild is a non-profit organization dedicated to the growth and knowledge of quilting techniques, patterns and the history of quilt making.  We meet monthly, eleven months a year.  We share ideas, learn from speakers and each other, work on community service projects, enjoy camp, and showcase our work in our annual quilt show.  We invite you to join us!

Our 2018 Opportunity Quilt, “Dream Weaver”
2018 Opp.jpg

This year’s opportunity quilt was inspired by two vintage (19th century) quilt blocks, God’s Eye and Path Through the Woods.  The blocks were updated by using modern fabrics and enhanced with original longarm designs by Lin Squires of Lin’s Longarm Quilting of Roseville. The quilt layout was designed by Victoria Murphy and pieced by members of the Pioneer Quilters Guild.  The quilt measures 80″x80″.  We will sell tickets throughout 2018, and the winning ticket will be drawn at our December 3, 2018, guild meeting.  You need not be present to win.  For information regarding the opportunity quilt or purchasing tickets, please contact: waysandmeans@pioneerquiltersguild.org
