Monterey Peninsula Quilters Guild 38th Annual Quilt Show

“Quilts By the Bay” Show Features the Best of Local Quilter Artists

Quilts are much more than comforting.  They tell can a story, share a feeling or paint a picture with fabric and thread.  Come find the quilt that speaks to you at the Monterey Peninsula Quilt Guild’s annual “Quilts By the Bay” show, which runs April 7th through the 9th, coinciding with the Good Old Days celebration in Pacific Grove.

The show opens on Friday, the day before Good Old Days begins, to accommodate special groups and those who want to beat the weekend festival crowds.

The Quilt show features more than 200 quilts on display from floor to ceiling in historic Chautauqua Hall, offering a colorful array of works in every size and style.  All quilts are made by local quilt artists and members of the Monterey Peninsula Quilt Guild.  Visitors can vote for their favorite quilt in the Viewer’s Choice balloting, shop at the Boutique for handcrafted items and rummage through the well-stocked Quilters Garage Sale for crafty treasures at bargain prices.

For those who’d like to take home a one-of-a-kind souvenir, there is a Mini Quilt Raffle with drawings for more than 25 handmade small-scale quilts and one lucky person will win the guild’s opportunity quilt "Sunny Side Up," a beautiful queen-size bed quilt measuring 90” x 108”.  Opportunity quilt tickets are available at the show and in advance at Back Porch Fabrics, 157 Grand Avenue, Pacific Grove, (831) 375-4453.  Raffle drawing for all quilts will be on Sunday, April 9th; winners need not be present to win.

Show hours are Friday through Sunday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm; admission is $5.00 Adults, under 18 free with adult.
