AQG Quilters Score Clean Sweep at VQF 2014
GREAT NEWS…Seven entries by AQG members won awards at the Vermont Quilt Festival 2014 Contest held at Essex Junction, Vermont from June 26-29. Every member who entered a quilt in the contest won at least one award in this year’s contest. I don’t believe any other guild can boast a 100% success rate for ribbons earned by their members who entered quilts in this year’s contest. Included in the winners’ list is this years AQG Raffle Quilt “Sonoran Sunset.
The NQA judges who have judged our AQG quilt shows have all emphasized the outstanding quality and workmanship of the quilts that our guild members have produced for our quilt shows. Guess they were right!!!! What a phenomenal achievement for the Adirondack Quilters Guild!!!
