For twenty years Shelley has been creating Cathedral Window Quilts entirely by machine. The technique uses three-dimensional piecing to construct the top and during quilting the bias folds are rolled and stitched in place to create a finished quilt.

WSQ Quilt Show

October 20-22, 2023
Spokane County Fair & Expo Center

Quilt registration opens Thursday, April 27

Pincushion Swap

We had so much fun with the Mug Rug Swap in 2022 that we’re going to continue the fun with a little twist. In 2023 WSQ is having a seasonal Pin Cushion Swap! You can never have too many pin cushions! 

WSQ Mystery Quilt

WSQ will be hosting a Mystery Quilt project. For those unfamiliar with mysteries…a supply list of fabric needed is provided. Then, at various intervals, individual clues, as to how to cut and/or sew the pieces are released. No one knows what it will look like until the end…hence the mystery! Even though everyone is using the same pattern, the fabric choices create tops that are all unique.

2023 Charity Central Challenge

The 2023 challenge is all about strips & blocks!  We all have them and here is a way to put them to good use.  Charity Central has kits, patterns, and charts for making the most of your strips and scraps.

Sheryl Anderson

We are saddened to announce the passing of Sheryl Anderson on February 12.  Sheryl was an active member of WSQ, most recently co-chairing the Charity Central committee.  She will be missed.


Our Mission

Our Mission is to promote and enhance the art of quilting and quilt making by exhibitions, lectures, and workshops offered to the organization membership and the general public. It is to foster the conservation and preservation of quilts and increase public awareness and appreciation of quilts through our Quilt Show.


The benefits of being a volunteer are numerous. Volunteers have fun, are involved in the quilting community, and are constantly engaged in meeting others through social events.

Some of our committees include:

  • Charity Central
  • WSQ’s Interstate Fair Booth
  • Library
  • Quilting Bee
  • Small Groups
  • Website Committee
  • Quilt Show
  • and more…
