“March 2017 Activities’
Quilt For a Cause at 2017 Quilt Fiesta!
Quilt For a Cause congratulates the Tucson Quilters Guild for the lovely 2017 Quilt Fiesta held at the Tucson Convention Center in February. The quilts were stunning, the vendors exciting and Quilt For a Cause was delighted to talk with many visitors about our mission of helping in the fight against women’s cancers and selling handmade quilted items and patterns in our booth. A big THANK YOU to all those who supported this very important cause!
The Dorothy Lee Memorial Asian-Inspired Quilt Award sponsored by Quilt For a Cause, Inc., the Pacific Rim Bee and the Tucson Quilters Guild memorializes Dorothy Lee, a founding member of Quilt For a Cause and an active member of these organizations. This year the award was won by Janet Pugh who created a beautiful “Japanese Sampler.” The quilt incorporates lovely indigo prints, some of which were purchased in Japan, and traditional reds creating striking highlights. The Japanese inspired block designs easily take the viewer’s imagination across the Pacific to Japan. Congratulations, Janet!
