   "Glacier Pines (94x94)," a pattern by Judy Niemeyer, is the raffle quilt for the 2012 Miami Valley Quilters Guild show, May 4-5 at the Greene County Fairgrounds in Xenia, Ohio.

   The quilt was paper pieced, machine pieced, hand appliquéd, and machine quilted all by members of the Guild. It is somewhat larger than the original 86x86 pattern.

   Guild members also hand appliquéd and hand quilted a wall hanging featuring a selection of Celtic designs which also was awarded in the quilt show raffle.


"Celtic Beauty (44.5x46)," an original arrangement of Celtic designs with three-dimensional floral appliqués, was completely hand appliquéd and hand quilted by Guild members.

Extreme Quilting

Can a quilt guild match "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" at its own game?

The Miami Valley Quilters' Guild took on the challenge of creating seven quilts for the James Terpenning Family of Beavercreek, Ohio, when they were announced as the fortunate family to receive a newly constructed home as part of the 2009 season of the television series "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." For the television show, a family is selected to receive a new home which is constructed within a one-week timeframe.  The Miami Valley Quilters' Guild wanted to do a special community project and took on an exciting challenge.

An Ohio Quilt Guild for Quilters and Fabric Artists in Dayton and Southwest Ohio

Miami Valley Quilters' Guild

          The Miami Valley Quilters' Guild is more than just a club, we are a diverse group with more than 200 members from all areas of interest and all quilting skill levels. Members include quilters, collectors of quilts, quilting teachers, designers and those simply interested in the art and craft of quilting. Our members come from throughout the Miami Valley Region of Southwest Ohio – the Dayton/Springfield Metro area including suburbs and communities such as Huber Heights, Englewood, Tipp City, Vandalia, Kettering, Oakwood, Beavercreek, Xenia, Fairborn, and Yellow Springs in Montgomery, Clark, Greene, and Preble counties and beyond. Our members have varied interests: traditional quilts and fabric art - hand piecing and machine work - long-arm machine quilting, home machine quilting and, of course, hand quilting. 

           As do other quilt guilds, clubs, and groups in Ohio, the Miami Valley Quilters' Guild  provides quilters with education and instruction through classes and workshops; inspiration and growth through meetings featuring accomplished quilters, quilt designers, and quilting teachers; fellowship and support through meetings, retreats, shows, programs, our newsletter, and our website; and encouragement and recognition  through quilt shows, show-and-tell sessions, challenges, charitable activities, and other events. We join other Ohio quilt guilds in promoting the history and tradition of quilting and embrace all quilting techniques, styles, and methods. 

         The Miami Valley Quilters' Guild proudly presents recent examples of quilting by its members in a biennial quilt show.  One of the best quilt shows in Ohio, the show is held in May even-numbered years at the Greene County Fairgrounds in Xenia.  The 2012 show will be Friday and Saturday, May 4and 5.

          We meet at 7:00 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month at the Fairborn Senior Center, 325 North Third Street, Fairborn, Ohio.  Annual dues of $20 includes attendance at meetings, access to our monthly newsletter, electronic services through our website and e-mail lists, reduced fees for classes and workshops, library privileges, eligibility for our annual retreat, exhibiting your quilts in our biennial membership shows, and much more, particularly the fellowship of fellow quilters.
