Community Quilt

Join local fiber artist, Vicky Berry, in creating a "community quilt" that will tell a story of Stillwater and bring community members together in artistic collaboration.  Inspired by the work of quilter, Maria Shell, Berry is inviting community members to participate by making a block for the quilt with imagery from their own Stillwater story- a favorite place, a memory, a symbol of meaning. These brightly colored blocks will be joined together by Berry and volunteers from the Cimarron Valley Quilter’s Guild to form a large quilt with the word STILLWATER surrounded by 76 community squares. Participation does not require sewing experience, only the desire to be creative in community and contribute individual memories and meaning to the collective!

To get the ball rolling, Berry and Guild volunteers will be hosting the project at Prairie Arts Center for the February Community Studio each Saturday of the month from 10am-12.
