About Our Opportunity Quilt

2018 Opportunity Quilt

2018 OppThis year’s 2018 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″.

The Opportunity Quilt is one of the guild’s ways of generating funds through the means of a raffle. Tickets are sold throughout the year and the winning ticket is drawn at our December guild meeting.

It is traditionally a queen sized quilt, but not always. The design of the quilt varies from year to year and the construction varies from one person to a small group, to membership participation by blocks being passed out that members complete and return.

We regularly schedule members to travel, setup and sit with the opportunity quilt to events and guilds.
