"This quilt combines so many things that I love about quilting. It thrills me to find the perfect fabric for a project and these Tilda fabrics "hit the spot." I think my endorphins kick in when I applique and hand quilt. It's therapeutic to listen to a good book while working with my hands to create something that can be appreciated and used by my family. It makes me grateful."

Design Source: Posies in the Valley by Blackberry Designs

Techniques used: hand appliqued, hand quilted

Size: 85 x 85


Presenting our 2024 Raffle Quilt...

"Sea Swept"

This beautiful quilt is a perfect example of a traditional pattern with a modern twist! Pattern designer Laura Flynn interspersed swirling snails trail blocks with elements from the storm at sea pattern to create a quilt full of movement. This quilt was made by one of our supporting groups, Shenandoah Piecemakers. They chose a Mod Plaid fabric which worked so well with the quilt pattern. By adding a few borders, this quilt is 93" x 102", large enough for a queen sized bed. Julie Belin of Blue Oaks Quilting used Ripples as the complementary quilting design.

Tickets are available now via our ticket sponors: the Scrappy Apple Quilts and More in Winchester and WebFabrics in Purcellville. Additionaly, tickets can be purchased from our friendly committee members, at area fairs or shows during the coming year, and at our show April 12-14, 2024.

Drawing will be held on the last day of the show.

We were so excited to find out that our quilt show was chosen to be a recipient of the 2020 Virginia Commission for the Arts Creative Communities Partnership Grant. Adding to that excitement was learning that the Town of Berryville, home to our quilt show for 41 years, matched that grant! This enabled us to replace old equipment that was no longer strong enough to hold up all of the beautiful quilts, as well as obtain more equipment in order to accommodate the larger quilts made today. We are so honored to have been chosen.
