s part of our educational outreach to the community, a quilt made by one of our members is displayed at the downtown Boise Public Library at 715 S. Capitol Boulevard.  A different quilt is displayed each month.   The quilts hang behind the Library checkout counter and include a short description of the quilt and contact information for our Guild.

Visit the downtown Boise Library and admire beautiful quilts made by our guild members.     (click on the images below for a larger view – then click away from it to return here)

Mary Mangum made “Affairs of the Heart” when she took a class at 2 Sisters Quilting in Meridian in 2006.   She learned many different methods of applique.    Then she made more quilt blocks after the class ended. She also designed the hearts with the narrow pink and purple fabric as the setting blocks.  She quilted it on her Gammill long arm using purple thread.

She finished the quilt in 2019 after setting it aside for several years to work on other quilts. She entered her “Affairs of the Heart” quilt in the 2019 BBQ Quilt show and was surprised to win a blue ribbon.  We think it is well deserved recognition of a beautiful and creative quilt.

Please stop at the downtown Boise library to view this quilt.
