It has been said that quilting is the art of stitching little pieces of yourself — your heart, soul, talent, and vision — using threads of love and beautiful fabric.
The Willow Valley Quilt Guild was formed in 2008 with roughly 20 residents who shared a love of quilting. Today, it has more than 60 members, ranging from beginners to expert quilters, who continue to hone their skills through instructional programs, lectures, and workshops.
The group has donated over 600 hand-crafted quilts to the Lititz-Lancaster Chapter of Project Linus. These quilts are given to children and families impacted by a variety of crisis situations through 30 organizations in Lancaster County.
An ongoing service project for the Willow Valley Quilt Guild is sewing and donating lovely placemats to Meals on Wheels. Nearly 400 placemats are given to recipients with dinner for the holidays in December each year.
This display of quilted wall hangings made by Guild members is as varied as the quilters themselves. We hope you enjoy seeing the different techniques each quilter incorporated into these one-of-a-kind creations.
The display will be up in the Cultural Center Art Gallery until July 29.
