East Cobb Quilters’ Guild Challenge 2023

RUBY, RUBY!

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNERS !!!

1st PLACE

Ruby

Quilt Maker:  Debbee West

60 inches W x 60 inches L

I always wanted to make Convex Illusions. When the ruby challenge came up, I decided to go ruby! I put 40 seed beads in the center to help the quilt glint when light hits it.

2nd Place

40 Hidden Rubies

Quilt Maker: Judy Weathers
36 inches W x 36 inches L

The quilt holds 40 ruby beads through the quilt. I used an Amy Pabst pattern from her log cabin book. It is hand quilted with dark, medium and light reds to celebrate 40 years for ECQG. I used foundation piecing for each block made with various cotton scraps.

It is done with raw edge fusible applique with the shapes cut out on my Cricut cutting machine. The mother seahorse watches serenely as the father seahorse gives birth to their 40th baby.

Welcome to East Cobb Quilters’ Guild

Welcome to the East Cobb Quilters’ Guild!  ECQG is made up of more than 300 quilters who share a love of quilts, and whose quilts are as diverse as the quilters themselves.  At our meetings you will see traditional and modern, pieced and applique, large and small, hand-quilted and machine quilted.  You will find quilters who are newbies and those who have been quilting for decades.  Our roots are in East Cobb County, but our members live in the Atlanta metro area and beyond.

Our meetings are held at Catholic Church of St. Ann in La Salette Hall in Marietta:

Catholic Church of St. Ann
4905 Roswell Rd.
Marietta, GA 30062
Directions/Map 

Our Day meeting starts at 10:00 a.m. on the last Friday of each month (except for November and December) and our Evening Meeting is held on the Thursday evening before the Day Meeting starting at 6:45 p.m.

The Guild provides a variety of events and activities that promote the art of quilting, foster community goodwill and create an atmosphere where fellowship and friendships prosper.   

Although visitors are welcome at both of our monthly meetings, why not consider joining the Guild?  You can see the benefits of membership on our Join Us page.  If you enjoy quilting, we are confident you will find your niche within our group.
