It’s time for an update about the Red and White Challenge Quilt Show! If you have been following the Quilted Moose through our social media postings, you are aware of the Martingale Red and White Quilts book and the quilt I designed for this beautiful book. In April this year, I issued a challenge to our readers; make a red and white quilt to be displayed in a quilt show that will coincide with the release of the book.
We are busy finalizing plans for the Red and White Challenge Quilt Show. I can’t believe that it is only a few weeks away from becoming a reality! Many of the quilts have already arrived and I expect many more will be dropped off this week.
A couple of years ago we hosted a Red and White Pillow Palooza challenge and we are also going to share the pillows that were designed for that event. I’m always blown away by the creativity of our Moose peeps!
The Friday hours of the quilt show have changed from our original plans. The open house hours for Friday, November 30, are from 10am-6:30pm. The open house hours for Saturday, December 1, remain as opening at 10am with closing at 8pm.
Drum roll please!
We are very excited to announce a special guest speaker, Jennifer Keltner. Jennifer is the Publisher and Chief Visionary Officer of Martingale Publishing and will be speaking at 7:00pm, November 30. We are so lucky that Jennifer is available to help launch our Red and White Challenge Quilt Show and the book, Red & White Quilts. This event will be held at Minglewood Lodge; 10603 S 237th Street, Gretna, NE 68028; the same location as the Red and White Challenge Quilt Show.
You will enjoy listening to Jennifer, she has lots to share about the creative process, bringing a book to fruition and the quilting industry in general. It’s an event you won’t want to miss! Admission to Friday evening’s event will be $10.00. Space will be limited. Please give us a call to reserve your spot. 402.332.4178
