Deep Space

Our 2021 Opportunity Quilt, “Deep Space,” is based on the quilt 'Uno' by Katie Pasquini Masopust as shown in her book 3 Dimensional Designs.  Karren Lusignan, the quilt’s organizer, drafted the pattern.  The quilt was made by Marylee Drake, Karren Lusignan, Jan Petre, Karin Polli, and Teri Sartain.  Beth Handy quilted it.  It is 51" wide and 55" long.

We will sell tickets throughout the year and draw the lucky winner on Saturday, April 10, 2021.

If you would like to purchase tickets now, please see our Opportunity Quilt page for the procedure.


The purpose of the Foothill Quilters Guild is to contribute to the growth and knowledge of quilting techniques, patterns, history and quilt-making by providing educational meetings; sponsor and support quilt-making activities; encourage quilt-making and collecting; and promote the knowledge and appreciation of quilting.
