Sew & Quilt Expo Reno

Special Displays 2020 - Quilt Show Reno

Every Quilt is a Story

As a prelude to the Carson Valley Quilt Guild's biennial quilt show, being held June 6 and 7, 2020 at the Douglas County Community Center, guild members were challenged with designing a small quilt depicting the 2020 show theme "Every Quilt is a Story." The process began a year before the quilt show with challenge quilt participants receiving 2 pieces of unrelated material that had to be used in a recognizable manner on the front of the quilt. No quilt could be larger the 30 x 30 inches or a total circumference of 120 inches. A number of guild members accepted the challenge.

With a show theme of "Every Quit is a Story" the design field is wide open. Before the 2020 quilt show, the challenge quilts will be displayed in numerous venues, including the Douglas County Libraries, Carson City Library, WNC Art Hall, and Dayton and Markleeville Libraries. The Carson Valley Quilt Guild is honored to have the Reno Quilt Show be the final venue in 2020 to display their challenge quilts.
