Each year KQG establishes a committee to oversee the budget and completion of our Opportunity Quilt. Members volunteer to help plan, construct and finish the quilt. The completed quilt is then displayed at various local quilt shows with tickets sold by members for the drawing of the winner at KQG annual Quilt Show. The winning ticket is drawn the last day of our show (on October 4th 2014 for this year’s show).
This year’s Opportunity Quilt was made by Gene K and Doreen G. It was quilted by Stephanie D all members in good standing of our Kingman Quilters Guild. The name of this quilt is “Arizona”. The pyramid shaped blocks on the border of this quilt represent the four elements of Earth, Wind, Fire and Water, which are incorporated nicely into the name of our Quilt Show: Arizona: Earth, Wind, Fire, Water.
When not displayed at other quilt events to raise money for our guild, the quilt may be seen at Connie’s Quilter’s Hideaway, 310 E Beale St. Kingman, AZ 86401 (928) 753-9095.
