Ten instructor-made quilts will be part of a quilt show at Summerfield Estates, a retirment community in Tigard. The beautiful quilt shown here was made by Nancy Dudley, one of the instructors in our Tuesday morning class. The quilts will be available for purchase at prices ranging from $50 to $200 as part of CCQ’s ongoing fundraising efforts. Other quilts in the show were made by members of Tualatin Valley Quilt Guild and residents of Summerfield Estates. The show will be one day only on Thursday, June 28, 10 am to 2 pm. Summerfield Estates is located at 11205 SW Summerfield Drive, Tigard, Oregon.
Since it isn’t possible to invite the community to observe our quilting classes at CCCF, CCQ is creating a traveling exhibit that we’ll take into the community to describe the diversity of the women we serve and the amazing quilts they create. The new exhibit will include photographs taken in our classes, a display of quilts made by our students and signage to tell our story. This project is made possible in part by a grant from the City of Wilsonville. The City’s Opportunity Grant Program funds a variety of projects to further educational and artistic opportunities and foster diversity in the community. The CCQ exhibit will be displayed in the Wilsonville Library during the month of July 2012 and a variety of other venues later in the year.
