Rising Star Annual Quilt Show


October 5 – 6

St. Brigid Church


The Rising Star Quilters Guild will hold its annual quilt show at St. Brigid Church, 1995 Massachusetts Avenue, in Lexington (located just blocks from Cary Hall) on Friday, October 5 from 10 am to 6 pm and Saturday October 6 from 10 am to 5pm.

More than 100 quilts will be on display.  This year members were challenged to interpret Square Dance in all its permutations in quilts.  In addition to bed quilts, wall quilts, and quilted objects on display, hand crafted items will be available for sale in the Boutique.  There will also be scavenger hunts for children and adults; a café selling beverages and bakery goods; and basket and mini-quilt raffles.  Raffle tickets for this year’s raffle quilt, Rising Star Rainbow, will be available at the show; the winning tickets will be drawn on Saturday, but you do not need to be present to win.

The King size Raffle Quilt, Rising Star Rainbow, is the product of a collaborative effort by the members of the Rising Star Quilters Guild.  The quilt was designed and quilted by two members of the group.  This beautiful 91” by 101” quilt is an overall geometric design in bright, vibrant colors.  The material used in the blocks came from the guild member’s collections of material.

Rising Star Quilters Guild is proud to donate quilts to Germaine Lawrence in Arlington, REACH Beyond Domestic Violence and Welcome Baby, and to support the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell.

Admission is $7; children 12 years old and under are admitted free.  The building is handicap accessible and there is free parking adjacent to the building.  Visit our website for more details:  http://www.risingstarquilters.org/show.html.
