LAKEPORT, Calif. – The deadline of Aug. 10 is approaching for entries to the Ladies of the Lake Quilt Guild’s 18th annual Falling Leaves Quilt Show.

Entry forms are available online at

The Web site includes all the information needed to enter quilts and other items in the show.

There is no limit on the number of items you may enter but each quilt or other item entered must have its own entry form.

Now is the time to get those unfinished pieces completed. Perhaps they need to be quilted or have a binding or a sleeve attached. With over 20 categories, there is a place for that special item you have waiting to be displayed.

One does not need to be a member of the guild to enter quilts. There is a need for quilts of all sizes as well as vignettes. Vignettes are small items such as doll quilts, table runners, placemats, garments, totes/purses or small wall hangings.

Quilters may choose to have their quilts or vignettes judged or enter quilts and vignettes without judging. Many quilters find it beneficial to have their quilts judged, learning much from an impartial evaluation. The judges are very positive and will award ribbons in every category.

Ladies of the Lake Quilt Guild 18th annual Falling Leaves Quilt Show is held at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Lakeport on Saturday, Oct. 5, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Sunday, Oct. 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
