rebeccas quilt 2016MIDDLETOWN, NJ - Rebecca's Reel Quilt Guild is proud to hold their biennial, judged Quilt Show,  10 AM to 4 PM Friday, May 13 and Saturday, May 14, 2016  at Poricy Park, 345 Oak Hill Rd, Middletown, NJ.

 

Over 160 quilts will be on exhibit in four buildings  - including the historic Murray Farmhouse and Barn.  Quilts on display range from miniature to king size in a wide variety of styles.  Many quilts will have ribbons from judging in various categories:  art and embellished, modern quilts, pieced, applique, etc.   Attendees have the opportunity to vote for their favorites in four Viewer's Choice awards and a separate 'Around the Block' Quilt Challenge.

A number of the quilts – including decorative wall hangings, lap and bed quilts - will be available for purchase.    A queen-sized bed quilt will be raffled on Saturday.  In addition, numerous decorative quilted wall hangings will be raffled on Friday and Saturday.  A portion of the purchase prices and the raffle proceeds support the work of the Guild.  Food will be available both days, provided by “Good Mood”.

The Guild is involved in several charities.  In support of Project Pillowcase, members meet regularly to create pillow cases for juvenile cancer patients in local hospitals.  Many quilts are also made for veterans through “Quilts of Valor” and “Wheelchair Quilts for Veterans” programs.  The Guild provides educational workshops and numerous community outreach programs.  

Rebecca's Reel Quilt Guild is a very active group meeting monthly at Poricy Park with numerous small group activities throughout the month.   Many meetings have invited speakers on quilting and fiber arts topics.
