Quilting By The Gulf XVIII

Centennial Garden

“Centennial Garden”, the Opportunity Quilt of the Venice Area Quilters’ Guild, contains 80 individual blocks from the pattern: “Sylvia’s Bridal Quilt” by Jennifer Chiaverini. 1920s reproduction fabrics were used to construct the blocks several years ago by Mary Anne Rhodes, one of our lifetime members. These blocks were found individually protected in vinyl sleeves with personal notes referencing the fabrics and pattern identity, along with the original book! Current guild members assembled the blocks, added sashing and border fabric. The exquisite quilting was done by Pat George. Our Opportunity quilt was named to honor the 100 years of womens’ accomplishments.
