The Trillium Quilt Guild, of Sister Bay, will display its members’ works at the The Anderson House at The Corner of the Past historical site south of Sister Bay on Aug. 10 & 11, 10 am – 3 pm.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the Trillium Quilt Guild has challenged its members to choose a quilt pattern from the 1920s and create a quilt, wall hanging or table runner inspired by that pattern. Rules for the “challenge” stipulated that the 1920s pattern could be re-created or used as inspiration, but the new creation must be made from today’s fabrics. The Tradition with a Twist exhibit will feature the results of this project.
Fully participating in community and charitable initiatives, Trillium’s recent projects include donating quilts to HELP of Door County, the Sister Bay EMT/Fire Department, Sister Bay’s Centennial, the Neighbor to Neighbor organization, victims of Hurricane Sandy, the Cancer Center at Door County Medical Center and the Quilts of Valor project. The Guild annually donates quilting books and magazine subscriptions to the Sister Bay Library.
The Trillium Quilt Guild meets the second and fourth Thursday of each month at the Sister Bay Fire Station, 220 Mill Road, from 10 am to noon. Membership is open to all levels of quilters for a nominal membership fee. New members are welcome.
