The number of hours that it takes to create the quilts that will be on display this Saturday, Sept. 28 in the annual Blue Jay Quilt Walk is astounding.
Members of the Willow Woods Quilt Guild will once again be sharing their talent as they hang their masterpieces throughout Blue Jay Village.

The quilt walk will start at 10 a.m. when people can start strolling and appreciating these works of art. At noon, the Mountain Fifes & Drums will perform, followed by the quilt auction at 1 p.m.

Geoff Hopper, a member of the Mountain Sunrise Rotary Club, will once again serve as auctioneer. Profits from the auction will go to Camp Paivika in Crestline, a camp that serves those who are disabled.

There will also be quilting supplies for sale. Both Dogwood Quilters and the Glendale Quilt Guild will have displays.

Yolanda Douglas, who is coordinating the event, said they will have use of the space next to the library in Blue Jay where folks can visit some special small exhibits.

“It looks so festive with the quilts blowing in the wind,” Douglas agreed.
She reminds everyone that the Willow Woods Quilt Guild is also sponsoring the decorated bra challenge again this year. “Come vote for your favorite,” she urged.

Proceeds from the voting will be donated to Mountains Community Hospital and put toward the new 3D mammography equipment.
“We were the first donors last year,” Douglas said.
