Special Exhibits

Memorial Quilts

Friendships are stitched together in Prairie Quilt Guild with a common love of this art form. With the quilts in this display, we honor the memory of our Prairie Quilt Guild members who have passed away since June 2016. We valued their friendship, their contributions to our guild, and their artistry.

Quilts and More Quilts

Myriad opportunities are available for today’s quilters. Traditional patterns and fabric designs, contemporary adaptations of old designs, art quilts, bed quilts, quilts of all sizes and for a multitude of purposes…the lists and variations are practically endless!

In addition to the many quilts of the guild members, we are pleased to be sharing other Special Exhibits in the 2018 Common Threads Quilt Show.

Sacred Threads

For the Sacred Threads exhibit, 24 quilts are divided into categories based on theme. These are Expressions of Joy, Spirituality, Inspiration, Grief, Healing and Peace/Brotherhood. The artwork themes provide thought-provoking insights, encouragement, inspiration and healing responses to grief and human hardships. It has attracted a wide array of visitors and has proved appropriate for all ages from young teens to seniors. The exhibit is a positive influence on the human spirit, giving joy as well as addressing concerns of the soul and mind.

The Van Gogh Cherrywood Challenge 2017

Vincent van Gogh is one of the world’s most beloved artists. The participants in this challenge were inspired by his work and life to create their own small masterpieces. The quilts are made entirely from hand dyed suede-look cotton from Cherrywood fabrics. The strong visual impact of this exhibit is due to the cohesive color, size and fabric.
