The Flying Needles Quilt Guild had a unique opportunity this year.  The guild constructed THREE opportunity quilts; one for the February 2018 Quilt Show, one for Breast Cancer Awareness and one as our regularly scheduled Opportunity Quilt 2017.

This beautiful paper pieced Judy Neimeyer pattern is a show stopper.  The batiks feature a soft aqua batik with sea themes and compasses.  The quilting, done by Michelle Stewart of Chalkboard Quilts, is a dense pattern of interlocking circles and swirls.  Tickets are available from any current Flying Needles member.  Contact Sandra Congleton with any further questions.
