This event will be held in the First National Bank Building at the The Ranch at I-25 and Crossroads on Friday, April 17th and Saturday, April 18th, 2019.  Hours are 9-5 both days.

This year, we will have two displays:

Our theme for this year’s challenge is flashback to the 1960s.   Beatles, peace signs, hippies, tie dye, long hair, rock & roll, being hip or being square.  Make your own project around a 1960s theme, using a commercial pattern or one of your own creation.  To participate, fill out an entry form and submit it to a participating quilt store with your project by April 13.  Wall hangings, totes or other interpretations of a 60s theme no larger than 60” X 60” will be accepted. Projects will hang at the Springtime in the Rockies Shop Hop at the Ranch, April 17 & 18.   Gift Basket Prizes awarded: $250 1st; $200 2nd; $150 3rd as picked by Viewer’s Choice.  Projects and prizes can be collected from your participating shop after the show.
