Tree of Paradise Opportunity Quilt

2014 Opportunity Quilt "Tree of Paradise"

Congratulations to Melanie Van Erden, winner of the 2014 Opportunity Quilt


The Gold Bug Quilters Guild of El Dorado County represents quilters of all ages and interests in the art of quilting and fabric art.  We believe that the best way to contribute to the growth and knowledge of quilting is through education and fellowship.  We hold meetings each month at which time we share techniques, designs, and projects (complete or not). The Gold Bug Quilters also use their talents for community service projects such as creating comfort quilts that are donated to such organizations as the Senior Center, Child Protective Services and Family Connections, Foster Families Service and Foster Families and Infant Development Center.

Gold Bug Quilters was started in July of 1987 with 12 members.  The name was chosen to represent our Gold Rush heritage.

We encourage visitors to join us at one of our meetings for an experience in the world of Quilting Arts. 

In Case You Missed It: The 2014 Guild Quilt Show was held at the Cameron Park Community Center this year.  The dates were Sept 5-7, 2014 See the award winning quilts in our photo gallery.
