Local and Virtual Quilt Shows

The biennial show “Spring on the Strait” will be held at the Historic Clocktower in Benicia on April 30 (10am to 5pm) and May 1, 2022 (10am to 4pm).

Raffle tickets for the opportunity quilt titled “Radiant Joy” are on sale now . This beautiful quilt was designed by Catherine Dumas. When asked about this beautiful creation Catherine responded: “One of my favorite quilt designers is Jacqueline de Jonge. For this quilt I used her center medallion and grabbed some elements from other designs of hers. Then I mashed it all up and added my own spin, adding the small floating stars and the half stars and ¾ arcs. It was a fun but nerve-wracking experience as I wanted it to turn out perfect.”

Tickets are $1 each or six for $5.  The quilt will be raffled off on May 1, 2022. To purchase tickets please reach out to Denise Lyons Conrad at [email protected]
