Our 30th annual Kitsap Quilters’ Guild show will be held on February 19th and 20th at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds in East Bremerton. Typically we display 200+ quilts and it’s well worth coming to view them. Our guild members are talented and the quilts range all the way from traditional through to modern. We always show case the work of one guild member in a special exhibit and this year it will be Jaxine Anderson. Here’s our beautiful raffle quilt, pieced by guild members and machine quilted by Marybeth O’Halloran. The pattern is by Judy Niemeyer.
The quilt will be displayed at the show where you will have the opportunity to purchase tickets for the raffle. Here’s a detailed shot showing the exquisite quilting. The drawing for the raffle will be at our quilt guild meeting on February 23rd.
That’s a gorgeous quilt! I can’t even make a stab at something that complicated anymore as I was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s a year and a half ago. I almost gave up quilting but missed it so much I thought I’d try to just do simple quilts, and stick to the things I was already good at. I’m so blessed I did because in the last year I have managed twenty pieces! Mostly lap quilts and small wall hangings, and certainly with more errors than before, but oh so satisfying!! Please encourage your fellow quilters and students to not give up when the brain and body don’t cooperate like they did previously! I can’t do much else these days, but faith and family and quilting are giving me a rich, full life in the meantime. Thank you for listening, and for sharing your skills with others.

Thank you. I’m so glad that you returned to quilting and that you continue to enjoy your passion. That’s wonderful. May your life continue to be rich and satisfying, and I wish you all the best.
The quilt is beautiful is there some where that I can purchase the pattern?
This is a Judy Niemeyer pattern. Try visiting her website and contacting her directly. All the best in your quest.
where can I purchase this pattern.
Try looking up the designers on the internet, or ask at your local quilt shop. Hope you find it.
What fabric did you use for this quilt? Maker/name of prints? Thanks
This was a quilt that our guild made as a fund raiser in 2016. It looks like a selection of well chosen batiks that make a beautiful gradation of the colors.
