Our History

Ocean Waves Quilt Guild is celebrated it's 20th birthday in April, 2017


On April 7, 1997, Ocean Waves Quilt Guild came to be.  Ocean Waves quilt Guild began as a conversation among three members of a guild that met in the evening, which was at a distance from their homes. It was a long drive and difficult to always attend with family responsibilities. They felt there was interest in starting a daytime quilt guild. A group of 18 friends, looking to have fun and expand their quilting knowledge and learn new skills - closer to home and meeting in the morning.

The logo of the Ocean Waves Quilt Guild is a blue and white Monkey Wrench or Snail's Trail quilt block.  It was chosen by the charter members because it resembled a rolling wave.
