2016 Art Quilts for ACS

"Dreaming Of A World Without Cancer"

click here for the ACS quilt entry form (note that this is different from the "regular" form used for exhibit entries)

The Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild will once again be quilting for a cause during the guild’s 2016 exhibit. Members are invited to help fight cancer by making an art quilt in memory of a victim, in honor of a survivor, or to simply raise money for the American Cancer Society of Tioga County. The rules are easy. Make a 9”x12” art quilt using the theme, “dreams”. Any style, color, technique, and ability are welcome. All quilts entered in the “Dreaming Of A World Without Cancer” category will be offered for sale at the price of $25.00 each during the month of the exhibit. All profits will be donated to the American Cancer Society of Tioga County at the close of the exhibit.

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives, and diminishing suffering from cancer, through research, education, advocacy, and service.
