2023 Quilt Show
Every year the Longmont Quilt Guild holds a quilt show to showcase the talent and breadth of projects that our members work on throughout the year. Entries are limited to guild members, but we welcome the public to come see all of the beautiful quilts that are entered. You also have the opportunity to vote on your favorite quilt for each category, as well as best of show. Winners receive a ribbon to commemorate their hard work.
