- You will select a location for your entry to be displayed. Options are: Main Show, Guild Display, Friendship Booth, Guild Display or Black and White Challenge. The Main Show is the area where most quilts are displayed. The difference between that and the Guild Display is that the Guild Display is the display area that promotes our Guild. They are projects that members have entered that have been done through the year as guild projects. These may include lotto blocks, class projects, Christmas party gift exchange items, Secret Sister gifts, Summer Challenge projects, Shoebox charity quilts, etc. Friendship Booths are where friendship groups create a display to show all of their projects in one space. These may include, but are not limited to, Chain Gang, Apple Valley Piece Makers, Quirky Quilters, Apple-K-Ers, etc. If your entry is to go in a friendship booth, you will be asked to identify which one. New for 2019 is the Black and White Challenge. See the Guild webpage at: http://www.yakimavalleyquiltersguild.org/quilts-in-the-city-2019.htm for complete information.
