The Northwest and Southwest Regions of the Wyoming State Quilt Guild have joined forces to make the 2021 Quilt Wyoming the best ever! Although we are in uncharted territory, we believe we can combine the best of both the 2020 and 2021 events to provide WSQG members something to really look forward to and to salvage what we can from Flower Power QW 2020.
The Northwest Region will be creatively revealing its theme and Opportunity Quilt by electronic means, in Patchwords and by mail to all members in July. In the meantime, the 2020 Opportunity Quilt will continue to be displayed and the drawing for the lucky winner will be held in Powell at the same time as the drawing for the Northwest Region’s Opportunity Quilt. Quilters who purchased packets for this year’s Challenge Quilt should complete those projects because they will be separately displayed in Powell. The same is true for the 2020 Friendship Blocks.
The Southwest and Northwest Regions are doing their best to meet the challenges of integrating two separate events into one by building on the work of the Southwest Region and merging it with the Northwest Region’s vision. Basically, as quilters do, we are picking up the “pieces” of both events and combining them into a “quilt” of sorts to be enjoyed by WSQG members in Powell next summer. Stay tuned for the Northwest Region’s big reveal and more details as both committees work together to embrace the possibilities of this unprecedented time in our lives.
Quilt Wyoming 2021 will be unlike any other and we hope WSQG members will support this joint effort by purchasing tickets for both Opportunity Quilts and by sewing Friendship Blocks and creating Challenge Quilts for both the 2020 and 2021 events. We have a lot to look forward to!
