"A Festival of Quilts"
Submissions must be postmarked by March 5, 2011
The Baby Boutique will offer Northwest Quilters a venue to display and sell their work at the 2011 NWQ Show in March. We believe there is a strong demand for quality, custom-made quilts and other unique quilted items for babies. The boutique is your chance to show off your talents while also providing a family with a wonderful keepsake for their baby!
Entries must be postmarked by March 5, 2011.
Thank you for your enthusiastic participation in Baby Boutique! We hope to see a booth full of lovely items which showcase our quilters' talent and we hope the Boutique will attract more visitors and recognition for Northwest Quilters!

Oregon Quilt Project
The Oregon Quilt Project will be documenting quilts on Saturday, March 12, 2011, at the quilt show. You must make an appointment in advance by contacting Bill Volckening. The documentation will take 35 minutes. You are allowed 2 quilts per person. The cost is $7.50 for NWQ guild members and $10 for non-members.
The Oregon Quilt Project (OQP) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to documenting, collecting, and preserving information about the quilts and quilt makers of Oregon, past and present. Starting in April 2010, the multi-year, statewide documentation survey will travel to all parts of Oregon, documenting quilts and their stories.
Documentation will be conducted using the methods provided by The Quilt Index, a national online database of quilt information. Each OQP record will include any known history of the quilt, a detailed description of the size, block design, style, fabrics, thread, batting, backing, quilting, etc., and pictures of the whole quilt and detail shots. Information and images will be archived as part of the OQP database and will eventually be included in The Quilt Index.
The OQP is co-chaired by Martha Spark of Roseburg, the new facilitator of the Columbia-Willamette Quilt Study Group and former Collections Manager at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in Colorado; and Bill Volckening of Portland, a quilt collector of 19th and 20th Century American quilts and a NWQ member who recently gave a program about antique quilts for us.
OQP will document quilts made in Oregon, quilts brought to Oregon, and quilts of any age, condition or style - even unfinished tops - whether made as bed coverings or for display, but it will not include wearable art or other fiber arts.
For information about documenting your quilts or volunteering, please contact Bill Volckening.
