September - Anita Ruthenberg

Anita Ruthenberg, member of TVQG and resident of Weatherford, Texas, loves modern, contemporary, and art quilts.  She won lst prize in the Parker County Quilt Show last event with one of her unusual quilts.

As a child, down on the farm in Rantoul, Illinois, she watched her mother quilt the old-fashioned way – with cereal box and hand templates.  It looked so pain-staking, Anita swore she’d never quilt!

2017 Challenge

Thanks to all who entered our “Two Color Quilt” challenge this year. Weren’t the quilts great? Thanks to Nikki for running the challenge, and special thanks to Patt Erisman for sponsoring the awards these many years. In case you weren’t at the August meeting, the winners were: Ellen Warthoe, Davene Hutchins, Pixie Wetmore, Pam Gantz, and Deborah Scott. Many of these quilts went on to win ribbons at our NTQF!

Stay tuned for info on next year’s challenge. I know it will be smaller, and might involve a chosen fabric. Don’t forget, the challenge winners get $$$, so it’s a good deal! More details to follow soon.
