HOME FOR QUILTS MATCHING CAMPAIGN
Our efforts are currently focused on finding supporters to help us raise funds for a long-term building. Having a permanent place will mean we can have on-going exhibits and many other quilt-related events. The initial push is to identify benefactors for the first half of our goal--$75,000. Then, by using that momentum to accelerate us forward in a region-wide fundraisign effort to "match" those benefactors' donations thus doubling our funds to reach our overall campaign goal of $150,000.
We need your support to solidify a permanent home for our quilt collections. Please donate now!
QUILT AUCTION - FALL 2021
We are planning a quilt auction for Fall 2021. The majority of the quilts to be auctioned off will be quilts made with printed fabric panels. The quality and array of printed panels available to quilters today is unparalleled. We have invited quilters in the region to create these auction quilts. The themes of the panels include wildlife, landscapes, and patriotic.
QHM will be supplying the fabric panel and 3 coordinating fabrics in each quilt kit. The completed quilt top must be turned in not later than August 1, 2021. For more guidelines in creating a quilt for this fundraising auction event, refer to the project notes sheet below. A photo of each printed panel and the number of each print available appears below the project note sheet. You can email Joyce at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (208) 785-5936 if you have any questions. Be sure to check out the Design Inspiration section at the bottom of this page. More panels and more design ideas will be added as they become available. Please check this page for new items.

FUTURE QHM EXHIBITS
We know that beautiful quilts are not typically created in a day or two. Therefore, we want to invite you to read about the quilt exhibits we are planning in the future. Although specific exhibit dates have not yet been set, we hope that by sharing some general information now about those exhibits we will enourage quilters to think about those future exhibits as they involve themselves in the current and future quilt projects and group/guild activities.
