Online Quilt Show!

Quilt 41

Calling all quilters! California State Parks commemorates its 150th anniversary with an online show of quilts. Inspired by the Quilter's Sew-Ciety of Redding, Inc., these quilts were created to honor our state parks by quilters throughout the state and elsewhere.

More than a hundred entries are posted in our quilt galleries. Many of these astoundingly beautiful works of art look like paintings. All of them reflect our parks through the eyes of many extremely talented quilters.

Please join our effort to display 150 quilts for 150 years. Your skills and talents will help us commemorate our anniversary creatively, by highlighting artisan quilts for all to enjoy.

WHAT TO DO:  Create your own quilt inspired by a state park or parks. Sign up now by emailing 150th@parks.ca.gov with the word "Quilt" in the subject line. Be sure to include your name, contact information with email address, and which park inspires you to create your quilt. For a complete list of California state parks, see the drop-down list at http://www.parks.ca.gov/ParkIndex). Upon completion of your quilt, submit a photograph of your work for inclusion in our online quilt exhibit.

WHEN TO DO IT: To be included in the online show, you must submit your photo and other materials by September 12, 2014.

Visit the beautiful quilt gallery and submit your own. Help reach our goal of 150 quilts for 150 years!
