It’s official! We’re confirmed for a Modern Quilt Walk in Ann Morrison Park on Sept 11. The Quilt Walk is an informal way to share the art of modern quilting in an easily accessible location — and to capitalize on greenbelt foot traffic expected at Art in the Park that same weekend. Here’s a glimpse at how the Central Washington MQG hosted a similar event last year. (photos: Michelle Bartholomew)
More details will be forthcoming, but here’s what to know for now:
It’s Simple: We’ll spread our quilts out on the lawn, bring our own chairs and snacks, and BMQG will have a couple of information tables. It’s an opportunity to talk with people about your craft and artistry.
When: Saturday, Sept. 11; 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Where: Adjacent to the Boise Greenbelt in Ann Morrison Park (on the south side of the Boise River); we’ll display on a stretch of grass between the footbridge and Old Timer Shelter
Who: Anyone in the Boise MQG is welcome to participate and display quilts, no registration fee. We’ve also invited the Nampa MQG to participate.
Questions? Send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you’ll join us!
The mission of the Boise MQG is to develop and encourage the art of modern quilting; encourage new quilters and other fiber artists from all backgrounds to explore modern quilting; offer educational opportunities; and support “charity” or other works that provide back to the community through the use of modern quilting skills.
