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.                           

  During the actual Show & Tell time Marley Sharpe will be photographing your quilt so she can post them 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 .

The blocks were made by members of the Mountain Stars Quilters Guild.  The quilt was made by  Cathy Lang , machine quilted by Carol Dickson. The label  by Susann  Tresner.  Quilt mother is Elizabeth Luebberke. Elizabeth will be selling tickets so you may have the opportunity to win this beautiful quilt!  She would like guild members  to step up to help sell tickets at guild and venues.  This Opportunity Quilt is a fund raiser for our guild. .  Elizabeth’s contact info is in our membership book.

                              Tickets:  $1.00 Each       6 tickets for $5.00   and  30 tickets for $20.00                                                              Drawing Date: September 15, 2017

 March 2017- Carolyn Woods 

Click here for Carolyn Woods Registration Form:

 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.

QUILTS and GENEALOGY TALKS
        PROGRAM SCHEDULE  2017

Once upon a time . . . the very talented quilters from the Jacksonville Museum Quilters Guild set out to make unique quilts, each with a story to tell about the inhabitants and early history of the Rogue Valley.  Many years later the collection found itself without a home.  Ultimately, the historical quilt collection was donated to the Jackson County Genealogy Library (JCGL) where the quilts are displayed in the reading room at the Library.

One of the objectives of the JCGL Quilt Committee is to focus on the relationship of quilts to family history and genealogy.  Toward that end, we will continue the series of “Quilts and Genealogy”. These talks are given on the fourth Tuesday each month (except for December) at 1:30 pm at JCGL.  A complete schedule of the topics, presenters and pictures of the featured quilts will be available later this summer.

 Jackson County Genealogy Library 3405 South Pacific Highway, Medford Oregon.
