2016 Quilt Show Summary

Our quilt show is the only professionally judged quilt show in Idaho. Our show is open to adults and youths alike representing nineteen (19) different categories. Prizes valued at more that $3,000 for quilt entries!  If you do not wish to have your quilt judged, you may also enter it as an “Exhibit Only” quilt. For more information go to www.boisebasinquilters.org/quilt-show/entries

Barbara Shapel is our Featured Guest Quilt Artist this year. Barbara is an award winning quilter and author. Although Barbara is a resident of Washington, she is a native of Boise. Check out her bio on

This year, our guest quilt group is the Kuna PieceMakerS. These wonderful ladies will be exhibiting about 60 quilts.

On Friday afternoon, several Quilts of Valor will be presented to veterans of the Armed Services. For more information on BBQ’s involvement in this charity, go to www.boisebasinquilters.org/community-outreach/quilts-of-valor

Our wonderful show includes our “Love at Home” raffle quilt, door prizes, Gift Garden with hand-crafted items, quilt block Silent Auction, vendors from our local area and out of state, and demonstrations from many of our vendors.   Also, many quilt show visitors will go home with a door prize – fabric, patterns, thread, books!  The 2016 Quilt Show Brochure listing all the exciting activities, special exhibits, demonstrations, shopping opportunities, and a floor map will be available in September.

Many thanks to our online partners for providing this new service. Idaho Sewing & Vacuum, The Quilt Crossing, Nancy’s Quilting, and Jones Sew & Vac are offering various incentives that, collectively, are valued at nearly $75 (while supplies last).

We look forward to seeing you there.

We have advertised that a quilt appraiser would be available at the show. However, the appraiser will be unable to attend our event. We apologize for any inconvenience.
