Upon arriving at El Pueblo History Museum in Pueblo, our Visitors are welcomed to our Quilt Show!
Southern Colorado Regional Quilt Show
On the following pages are pictures from our 9th Annual Show, held April 5 - April 16, 2018 at the El Pueblo History Museum. Featured were 31 quilts by Katya Holen, with 123 additional quilts submitted by 54 area quilters.
We hosted over 1350 visitors during this Show! Visitors were invited to make a Bib Daddy or Big Momma bib for Hospice to give their patients at Christmas, from kits we prepared ahead of time. Children were invited to decorate cookies.
The quilts shown represent members of 7 quilting guilds across Southern Colorado: Pride City Quilt Guild, Scrappy Ladies Quilt Guild, Pueblo West Quilters, City Beat Modern Quilters, Calico Quilters, Olde Schoolhouse Quilters, Quilters Above the Clouds, sewing group Rippin & Stitchin, and our state guild - Colorado Quilt Council. Many of these quilters belong to more than one guild, yet four of the quilters who contributed to this Show do not belong to any guild.
Our Featured Quilter for 2018 was Katya Holen. Katya began her quilting experience in 1982, but it didn't go well and she set it aside until 2000 when she took a quilting class. Since then she has experimented with various techniques and now inspires many of us to try new things! She really enjoys the trend of Modern Quilting, and one of her modern quilts was the first thing to see upon entering the Show:
