Our history albums and A Mountain Stars Quilt Guild Look Back At The Past are found on the About Us page link.
We love show and tell! Our members bring quilts, both old and new, to our meeting to display and tell bits of information about how they were made or for whom. Often we merely enjoy looking at others' work with awe. In either case, show and tell is one of the most popular portions of our guild meeting.
Our Show & Tell quilts are posted on Facebook.
Cascade Lily is a pattern designed by and used with permission from Polly Minick and Laurie Simpson. Polly and Laurie are sisters and named their pattern Coastal Lily but the Mountain Stars Quilters Guild renamed their quilt to make it fit our beautiful Cascade Mountain range. The quilt is a “Show Stopper” just like Mt. McLoughlin just south of Crater Lake. It is the tallest peak in the Cascade Mountains between Mt. Thielsen in the north and Mt. Shasta in the south.
Cascade Lily is 97” X 100” - Thank you to Cottage Quilts~Medford, OR for donating fabric .

Do you dream of having a beautifully organized quilting space or studio? Have you been searching for a better way to organize your fabrics, tools, and threads? Are you tired of the clutter that seems to pile up and multiply with each quilting project? Wondering what you really should do with all those UFO’s?
Help is on the way! Mark your calendars for March 9th and 10th, when Carolyn Woods, professional organizer and author of Organizing Solutions for Every Quilter, An Illustrated Guide to the Space of your Dreams, will be teaching a class for the guild. You will come away with many inspiring ideas and practical strategies for getting started. You will actually spend time during class developing a plan of action. She will also be doing a guild presentation on UFO’s—how to sort them out, store them, develop goals for finishing them, and even help you identify the causes of your profusion of projects.
