Opportunity Quilt - VMQG

Congrats to the 2015 Opportunity Quilt winner Jeanne Snodgrass, who lives in Little Rock, CA. She bought $5 in tickets at superbuzzy​ during the Central Coast Shop Tour in May. The drawing was held at the Ventura MQG’s regular Member Meeting on August 10, 2015.

Suggested donations for opportunity quilt tickets brought in over $1500 to the Ventura Modern Quilt Guild. Thanks to all who bought and sold and talked up the Quilt. Stay tuned for info about our next Opportunity Quilt.

Boxing It Up
Our Premier Opportunity Quilt
65″ x 75″

…and it’s a beauty!  Ventura Modern Quilt Guild Members created their responses to a “Rectangle in a Rectangle” block challenge using only cotton solids and Kona white — and the results were so great, our then-VP Scott got inspired to design our first Opportunity Quilt using the blocks. With a lot of help from Ventura MQG members at various Saturday Sew-Ins at superbuzzy, and even more work by Scott, a tip to the left, and voila!  The completed top got passed on to Georganna Hawley for long arm quilting, and after six days, it was ready to bind and finally be presented to the world.
