Welcome to the Quaking Aspen Quilt Guild

Located in beautiful Boulder, Colorado, and the surrounding area, the Quaking Aspen Quilt Guild’s (QAQG) mission is to preserve and continue the history, traditions, and art of quilt making with education, fellowship, and community service projects. We welcome you to join us at our next meeting!

December Holiday Party, December 15, 2022, 12 pm-3 pm

Please join us for lots of fun, games, a potluck lunch, prizes, sharing and friendship. Please bring your favorite protein, salad, fruit, dessert, cake or bread to share. Cold dishes are suggested as there will be no way to keep food warm. Beverages will be supplied.

We will have a member gift exchange. Please bring a wrapped gift (new and unused–sewing notions are a great idea) of $10-$15 value, for the gift exchange. Participation in the exchange is optional.

Voluntary donations of socks for the homeless and canned goods or toiletries for the Harvest of Hope Pantry would be much appreciated. You can view a list of the items most needed by the Harvest of Hope Pantry here.  

Looking forward to seeing you there!  Venue:  Boulder Valley Christian Church.

February General Meeting, February 16, 2023, 12 pm-3 pm,  Lea McComas In-Person Lecture and Trunk Show, Color Theory for Quilters  

This lecture will address key concepts for quilters related to the selection and use of color in quilting. Topics will include:

  • The Color Wheel
    A history and composition of the color wheel
  • Color Schemes
    Combinations that work, and fixing those that don’t
  • Value
    Why light vs. dark is actually more important than color
  • Temperature
    The visual and emotional effects of colors and proportions: some colors are timid, others are bullies, learn to manage them so that they all play well together.

March General Meeting, March 16, 2023, 12 pm-3 pm, Scotti  McCarthy, RMQM, In-Person Lecture and Trunk Show, “Red and White Quilts” Rescheduled

Join us in person, as Scotti McCarthy of the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum presents a lecture and trunk show featuring an array of beautiful red and white quilts.   Who hasn’t been captivated by the eye-catching beauty of a red-and-white quilt? These stunning quilts can be a simple design of a patchwork quilt or the intricate design of a Mariner’s Compass. Red and white quilts run the gamut of time from the early 1800s to contemporary studio art quilts. RMQM brings you a wonderful collection of red-and-white quilts in a PowerPoint presentation as well as hands-on quilts for all to view and touch. This meeting will be held at the Boulder Valley Christian Church.  For more information, contact Pam Breig, vp-programs@quakingaspenquiltguild.org.
