2019 Challenge Quilt
​Fly Quilter's Fly
This year's challenge features a well loved and traditional block, Flying Geese.  The challenge quilts will be displayed and judged at the March meeting.

There are no size requirements for this year's challenge, so here we go.

Your quilt must have at least one recognizable flying geese block in the quilt as well as at least 6 square inches of turquoise.  The fabric can be a solid, batik or read as a solid.

The 6 inch square can be cut into smaller pieces as you wish.

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with me via email, carolyn.t solomon@gmail.com or call me at 339-0720.

Let your imagination run wild and fly!

Capitol City Quilt Guild (CCQG) was organized in March, 1984, to encourage fellowship, cooperation, and learning among area quilters and to promote public appreciation for creativity and high standards for quilting.  CCQG is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization giving to the community education, hosting quilt shows to spread the art of quilting.  The Guild members make and donate quilts for various charities and as well as provide free education seminars for the public on the art of quilting.

Community Outreach 2019
We have a second fall event scheduled in October and could use your help.

Saturday and Sunday, October 19 and 20, we will be at the Fenner Apple Butter Festival from 11-5 each day.  Choose your own schedule including being a bit early on Saturday to set up or later on Sunday to close.

This is an opportunity to have the Guild visible in the Lansing area.  It’s fun to chat with visitors, help kids of all ages play with what happens to pattern and color with differing arrangements, and to share some of our beautiful quilts with the community.  They often are amazed at the variety of quilts that “count” as quilts. 

Please think about joining us at one or more of these opportunities to share our love of quilting.  Please call (371-1754) or email (j.kbooth@att.net) Kathy Booth to choose your time to join us.
