Quilts by Members of the Trillium Quilt Guild
The Trillium Quilt Guild, Sister Bay, WI is proud to display its members’ works at the Link Gallery from August 4 – 27, 2014.
The exhibition, Door County, Its Land and Water features approximately 30 quilts that depict the richness of Door County. Among the subjects are landscapes, water scenes, wildflowers and wildlife, and the county’s abundance of agricultural products.
The quilts exhibited vary greatly in style, in technique and in combinations of techniques. Of particular interest is a miniature quilt entitled “Around the Door” by Jenni Stultz of Fish Creek. Consisting of 12 panels, each portrays a treasured aspect of Door County (three panels are pictured above).
The Trillium Quilt Guild has been part of the Door art scene for more than 16 years. Fully participating in community and charitable initiatives, its recent projects have included donating quilts to Sister Bay’s Centennial, the Neighbor to Neighbor organization, victims of Hurricane Sandy, the Cancer Center at DCMH, and the Quilts of Valor project. The Guild annually donates quilting books and magazine subscriptions to the Sister Bay Library, and it has also participated in community celebrations including the recent Baileys Harbor winter quilting project, the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse Exhibit and Gibraltar Heritage Days.
Trillium Quilt Guild’s regularly scheduled exhibitions have included a collaboration with Door County Poets that resulted in two exhibitions and a publication, as well as shows at the Fairfield Gallery, the Link Gallery, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Gallery, the Corner of the Past Museum, the Scandia Village Gallery, and The Ridges Sanctuary’s Invitational Show celebrating its 75th Anniversary. Quilts by individual members have been juried into shows at the Hardy Gallery and the prestigious Quilt Expo in Madison.
The Trillium Quilt Guild meets the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month at the Sister Bay Fire Station, 220 Mill Rd., from 10am to noon. Membership is open to all levels of quilters for a nominal membership fee. New members are welcome.
