Festival of Quilts Information

It is time to mark your 2019 calendars! The dates for the 2019 Festival of Quilts will be June 1st and 2nd. This is the weekend following Heritage Park in Calgary and a couple of weeks prior to Quilt Canada, which is being held in Ottawa.

A look back to books and magazines of 1978 and there are patterns for quilting templates, the use of scissors, and finished quilts with intricate hand-quilting. Today, quilt-makers have rotary cutters in a multitude of designs, acrylic rulers and templates and machine quilting done using domestic machines and long-arms. 2018 has been a year of celebration and reflection on the past 40 years for the members of the Edmonton and District Quilters’ Guild, but in 2019, focus your thoughts to the future….announcing (do you hear the drum roll?) the theme for the EDQG 2019 Festival of Quilts... The Future of Quilting: The Sky’s the Limit! Maybe we can find an app for that!

The show provides an opportunity for guild members to share their work with the public. The quilts on display highlight many different types of quilting - from traditional bed quilts to quilts hung as works of art. There are functional and decorative quilted items, such as table runners, jackets, totes and purses, and bowls.

Members may choose to enter their quilts in judged or non-judged categories, and all quilts are eligible for a
“Viewer’s Choice” award, voted for by those attending the show.

Vendors, specializing in a variety of merchandise designed for quilters, form another aspect of the show and offer demonstrations of new techniques, tools, and other enhancements.
