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’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.
Who We Are
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 on the first Monday of each month at the Shepherd of the Sierra Presbyterian Church on Barton Road in Loomis. (Except July, and September’s meeting is the last Monday in August.) We snack and begin socializing at around 6:30 pm and the official meeting starts at 7:00 pm. 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 membership is limited to 175 with a waiting list for prospective members as needed. Members are expected to support the activities of the Guild by voluntary service to the Guild, such as participation in fund-raising activities, serving on committees, assisting in community service projects, and attending a minimum of 5 meetings per year. If interested in becoming a member of our family, please contact our membership team.
