President's Quilt

It is the Past President’s honor to make a quilt for the current president as she leaves office. It is also
traditional that as many members as are willing to make a block to be included in the quilt. This is an
important way to acknowledge our appreciation for our President’s leadership.

Link for the pattern is located here:

Use a batik (any color) for the print and a white-on-white for the background. Please complete the block and sign the center section with permanent ink. Blocks need to be received
no later than June 30, 2023. Blocks can be provided to Laural Hoppes or Carol Cook (library) at the meetings in
person or mailed to:

Laural Hoppes/President Block

P.O. Box 295 Wheat Ridge, CO 80034-0295.

CQC's 2023 Raffle Quilt

Greetings from the 2023 Raffle Quilt Committee!   At the January meeting, the 2023 Raffle Quilt was revealed for the first time. This is a beautiful 88” x 88” quilt based on the pattern Glacier Star from Quiltworx.  Several Colorado Quilting Council members participated in the construction including Glenda Brown, Penny Christensen, Carol Cook, Karen Hadfield, Diane Holub, Patty Joy, Sue Keck, Katie Melich, Jean Ruger, and Mary Rush.  Merrie Jones finished the quilt with her lovely machine quilting.   


The name for this year’s raffle quilt is "StarFlight” and we are looking forward to a very successful year.  Proceeds from raffle ticket sales are the major source of fundraising efforts to support CQC and its programs.  One lucky ticket holder will win this beautiful quilt in December.  Tickets are available for each member to pick up at our monthly meetings through March.  For those not able to attend a meeting, tickets will be mailed in early spring.   Please feel free to share tickets with friends and family and also members of quilt groups you might belong to.   


For questions about tickets or to request additional tickets, please contact Sue Comeau 303-450-6494 or Vicky Stricker 303-986-0705 or you may email them at:

Nominations for 2024 Officers


CQC elects 5 officers each year: President, 1st Vice-President, 2nd Vice-President Elect, Treasurer and Secretary.


There are 2 other officers that are not directly elected: 2nd Vice-President and Past President. The 2nd Vice-President serves the second year of a two-year term, continuing from 2nd Vice-President Elect. Past President, as its name suggests, is held by the person who most recently served as President.

This means there are 3 positions open for 2024 that we need to fill:

  • 1st Vice-President (one-year term) - responsibilities include maintaining the membership list, sending renewal reminders, finding volunteers to welcome members and guests at each general meeting

  • 2nd Vice-President Elect (two-year term) - responsibilities include obtaining speakers and workshops for 2025, then in 2025 becoming 2nd Vice-President and coordinate speakers' travel and introduce speakers and topics each month

  • Secretary (one year term) - responsibilities include publishing minutes of board meetings and general meetings


Please consider playing an active role in the organization by volunteering to run for office and/or nominating members who can fill these roles. The 2024 ballot will be included in the September newsletter. Nominations need to be finalized by July to meet this deadline. Please contact Karen Truesdell at with nominations or questions.
