Twenty-five “Ruby Ruby” challenge quilts will be on exhibit from May 25 through July 1 at the Sewell Mill Library and Cultural Center Gallery. They are from the most recent challenge competition between East Cobb Quilters’ Guild members this year.
East Cobb Quilters’ Guild has a long history of annual Guild quilt challenges. The quilts that will be on display were inspired by the Guild’s recent 40th Anniversary Year and a red color scheme was chosen based on the year’s representative ruby stone. The theme for each year’s challenge quilt evolves from a suggestion from the Challenge Quilt Committee that allows members to use their creativity, artistic talents, and technical skills to represent their interpretations of the challenge theme. Rules are that the entry must represent the theme, fit the definition of a quilt, meet certain size parameters, and meet a deadline. Each quilt on display will be accompanied by an artist’s statement to tell about their journey from “inspiration to creation.”
The opening reception for the “Ruby Ruby” exhibit at Sewell Mill Cultural Center Gallery will be held on Friday May 26th from 1pm – 3pm.
Sewell Mill Library and Cultural Center is located at 2051 Lower Roswell Rd, Marietta, GA 30068. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday from 10am-5pm, call for evening and weekend hours.
