Quilt display to open March 6 at WNCC

"Home Means Nevada," featuring challenge quilts from the Carson Valley Quilt Guild, will be on display in the College Gallery at Western Nevada Community College Bristlecone Building, March 6-30.

Quilts on display will reflect the quilt makers' impressions of what Nevada means to them. The challenge means all quilts must contain at least one blue fabric and one silver fabric, Nevada's state colors, in a recognizable form on the front, and be no larger than 30 inches per side.

An artist's reception in the gallery will be from 4:30-6:30 p.m. March 6.

This display is in preparation for a larger quilt show, "Home Means Nevada," June 17-18 at the Fuji Park Exhibit Hall. Approximately 175 quilts made by members of the guild will be on display, along with the Hoffman Challenge of dolls, a national traveling exhibit.

The Carson Valley Quilt Guild, an educational non-profit organization, has more than 200 members from Carson City, Dayton, Lake Tahoe and the Carson Valley.

Members make community quilts for people who lose their homes in fires, as well as other charitable contributions. They have monthly Saturday workshops at the WNCC Douglas campus, and bring in national quilting teachers who lecture on different quilting techniques.
