WESTFIELD - The Westfield Quilters' Guild will be holding its quilt show at 21 Brix Winery on June 1,2 and3.
The show on Friday and Saturday, June 1 and 2, will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Sunday, June 3 from noon to 4 p.m. The show will feature over 150 quilts and wall hangings and will be held at 21 Brix Winery, 6654 West Main Road in Portland. Admission is $4.
Co-chairpersons for this year's show are Helen Sager of Brocton and Pat Sysol of Dunkirk. Both are to be commended for their outstanding commitment to make this year's show a success.
Louise Quick, Chairperson of Comfort Quilts Kathy Yaw and Jan Shoup show off comfort quilts made by the Westfield Quilters’ Guild.
A Quilter's Challenge, competition between guild members, will offer quilters the opportunity to go beyond the familiar and comfortable. This year's challenge is entitled "21 Brix" which of course is the name of the winery where our show will be held. 21 Brix represents the highest sugar content of grapes used in wine making. Challenge quilts could not be bigger than 120 inches in circumference. In this particular challenge, the quilter also needed to meet two of the following criteria -an elephant, grapes or 21 brix.
In addition, the Westfield Quilt Show will feature a raffle quilt to benefit the guild. The quilt was featured on the cover of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine in October 2011. Joan Leopold and Barb Chall co-chaired the raffle quilt committee. The quilt is a traditional country star pattern which features scrappy Kansas Troubles' material and will fit a queen size bed. Jean Berg machine quilted the quilt. Tickets for the raffle quilt are $1 or 6 for $5.
The quilt show will also feature six vendors, quilt appraisals, door prizes and guild cookbooks. These cookbooks are a compilation of guild member recipes. Parking is free, the building is air-conditioned and the winery is open to the public.
