Community Quilt Show

The Milwaukie Center Quilt Show is a Community Quilt Show. It is not affiliated with a guild, and anyone may enter quilts in the show.

All quilts, old and new, are welcome, appreciated, and *Not Judged*.

Share your quilts ... Enter your favorite quilt, the quilt your grandmother made, or the one you have that you wish you had made. You don't have to be a quilt maker -- being a quilt owner qualifies you to enter a quilt in this show.

Bill Volckening
Featured Artist

The Featured Artist this year is Bill Volckening.

Bill has sewn a couple of award-winning quilts, but he is best known internationally and nationally as a quilt collector and author.

He will be lecturing on "Masterpiece Quilts" from The Volckening Collection on Saturday at 11:00 a.m., and will be available after lunch for a question-and-answer time.

Bill has a Web site, Bill Volckening.com which details The Volkening Collection. Quilts from the Collection have been displayed in exhibits from New York to Tokyo to France.

He has an entertaining and award-winning blog as well, Wonkyworld, which can be found here.

Bill Volckening describes himself as a quilt magnet because of his uncanny ability to unearth incredible quilts.

He has collected quilts for 25 years, and his collection includes more than 250 quilts made between 1760 and the present day.

Objects from his collection have been featured in a variety of publications around the world.

Originally from New Jersey, Bill now lives in Portland, Oregon with his ferocious rescue cat, Lulu.
