The Spring Valley Quit Guild’s next meeting is scheduled for May 1.
Nationally known artist, quilter and fabric designer Deb Strain will be featured at the next meeting of the Spring Valley Quilt Guild.
Strain designs fabrics for MODA Fabric Co., and many quilters have used and enjoyed her fabric designs. Deb plans a trunk show and will have items for sale that represent various aspects of her artistry and quilt work.

Designed using a “Quarter Log Cabin” block, the guild’s 2013 Raffle Quilt is now complete.
Worked in vivid batik fabrics, this handsome quilt will be raffled at the Quilts in the Park Quilt Show in September. Included in the raffle this year is a hand-crafted quilt rack that holds three quilts. The rack is constructed only of native Indiana poplar and hackberry stock in a heart motif using pegged construction. Packets of chances on the combination quilt and quilt rack raffle will be distributed to members at this meeting.
Guests are welcome at Spring Valley meetings, and this meeting is recommended for would-be quilters and quilt lovers.
