South Bay Quilters

Earlier this year I received the following email from Sue Glass, the quilt show chair for the 2015 and 2016 South Bay Quilters Guild of Torrance California.  

For our 2015 show, our challenge was 12 ½ inch red and white blocks, and one of those submitted used your block “Patrice’s Gift” from the Quiltmaker 100 blocks magazine.  

Since then we decided to use those challenge blocks to make our 2016 opportunity quilt, which is really lovely (red and white of course), but now realize we need to ask permission from the designers of the block patterns.  

I am writing today to belatedly ask your permission, and of course we will give credit to all of the designers on a sign that will accompany our quilt as it travels around the Southern California area and is displayed at our quilt show.  

Would you let me know?  I am attaching a photo of our finished quilt so you can see how the block was used.  

Thanks very much.

Didn't they do a lovely job with 30 very different blocks. Isn't it wonderful to see such talented people who can combine blocks like this and result in such a beautiful quilt.

Their next annual quilt show will be held on 13th - 14th February, 2016. Member quilts and garments are displayed in the show. Members make the opportunity quilt and sell tickets for it, and also donate auction quilts. They meet on tuesday nights. If you are interested in finding out more then check out their web page

Oh if you want to buy a ticket in this raffle you will find a link on their web page. There is also a voucher for $1 off the entry. Check it out if you live in the area or are passing through.
