Help! We need Columbine Quilters to share their passions!

Check out the Give it a Try Page under activities.

Debi is one of our very own master quilters.

Her work leaps off the page with color, texture and depth.

Debi Grundmeier, CQG Member—“Spirit of Quilting”


“In my life BQ (before quilting), I was an educator at the public school level as well as the university level. I frequently stressed to students that they should be lifelong learners. I think that is why my own path in quilting evolved from traditional quilting to art quilting. I love learning new techniques and styles, I love quilting and learning with others, I get inspired by challenges, and I love talking to others who love the quilting they do.

I feel especially lucky that I meet quilters in the two states I call “home”—Colorado in the summer/fall months and Arizona in the winter months. Quilting is a popular hobby for snowbirders, and I meet people from across the country with different perspectives, techniques, and skills.


In the trunk show I will talk about quilting “influencers” in my life—both short-term and long-term. Some of these quilters are teachers, some are friends. Sometimes the influencers don’t know me, but I get to know them on DVDs, YouTube, websites, or at National Quilt shows. If I’m lucky, I meet them in person. Some of these influencers are Columbine Quilt Guild members! I will also share my quilts and my experiences with contests—informal and formal (including juried) contests I’ve entered.” —Debi Grundmeier


Our October meeting and program will be at the Denver Church of Christ, with a Zoom link provided for those unable to attend in person.

The purpose of the Guild is to provide a warm, friendly atmosphere where all quilters, regardless of their interest or skill levels, are welcome.  The Guild provides a full program of educational meetings and workshops to promote quilting and preserve the heritage of the art of quilting.

We are 36 years strong this year!  Check out our birthday page!
