GVQC 2022 Challenge - Traditional to Modern

Genesee Valley Quilt Club began in 1936 and celebrates its 85th Anniversary in 2021. This challenge exhibit is to show how quilting has changed from the 1930’s until now. The aim of the challenge is to honor traditional blocks popular in the 1930’s and/or a modern interpretation of a traditional thirties block. This modern interpretation could be a block makeover, use modern fabrics, or both. Quilts are 36” x 36,” represent either traditional 1930’s or a modern interpretation, and can be appliqued or pieced. and can only include fifteen of the most popular blocks used in the 1930’s. Blocks allowed in the challenge include: Dresden Plate or Fan, Grandmother’s Flower Garden, Basket Design, Drunkard’s Path, Sunbonnet Sue, Flying Geese, Nine Patch, Star, Bow Tie, Tumbling Blocks, Snail’s Trail, New York Beauty, Log Cabin, Card Trick, and Diamond in a Square.

Rochester Museum and Science Center Exhibit

The Rochester and Science Center has a significant collection of antiques quilts which are seldom seen. The club historian, Mery McEvoy, is working with the museum to select the quilts to be shown. We are fortunate that the museum will deliver the quilts and help curate them for our show and a member of their staff will answer your questions about the quilts and their collection.

Vision 2020 - QCNYS Challenge

Quilters Consortium of New York State, of which GVQC is a member, has a biennial challenge. Quilters that belong to member clubs, or are business members are invited to submit a quilt in the challenge. The theme of the 2020 challenge is Vision 2020. Quilts can respond to the theme in whatever direction they want. For example, they may choose a design that is sight-related, explore eyeglass fashions, offer a macro view of the future, or explore the existential. Check their website www.qcnys.org for all the requirements for submitting a quilt.
