We celebrated 28 years of fun, friendship, learning, shows and quilting.


The show featured quilts of different sizes that show various techniques and textures.  There was both traditional and art quilts, hand appliqued and crazy quilts.  Many of the Guild members have had quilts published, hung in juried competitions, and received national and international recognition and awards.  The show included both machine and hand quilting.




Opportunity Quilt


  This year's Opportunity Quilt, which was named "Diversity" was designed by Terry Atkinson of Atkinson Designs, pieced by the CPQG members and custom quilted by member, Lynn O'Neill.  Chances were purchased at the quilt show or numerous venues preceding the show.

 The winning ticket was drawn at 4:00 pm on September 27th and you did not need to be present to win.  


Featuring Toby Lischko


Toby has been a crafter since age eight, but did not start quilting until 1985 when she got the bug.  She has been teaching quilting workshops and lecturing since 1995.  She considers herself a traditional quilter who loves working with traditional quilt blocks, but likes to add her own special flair. Toby has won many national awards for her quilts, including a blue ribbon for her Celestial Crowns quilt at the AQS show in Paducah, KY and the MQX show in 2005. She has her own line of patterns and templates under the name of Gateway Quilts & Stuff, Inc. and is the author of the book St. Louis Stars, published by Kansas City Star. She does commission work for many of the major fabric companies and has been published in many of the national quilt magazines since 1998. Toby's background in Special Education (25 years) makes her an excellent teacher.  In her classes she enjoys instilling the feeling that quilting should be fun, not difficult and loves hearing students say, "I didn't think I could do that!"

Special Exhibit:  Guild Challenge

Using the show's theme, "Celebrate America, Sweet Land of Liberty", guild members were asked to create a quilted piece under 100" perimeter.  It was a colorful, creative and interesting part of the show.



Food Vendor/Aviation Museum
