Pauline has made this beautiful wall hanging in response to our latest guild challenge using circles.
Eleaner has made another beautiful lap quilt from recycled velours, velvets and flannels.
Gail had enough bright colours left over from her rainbow quilt to make a placemat, a folded circle centrepiece
and two coasters.
Our Outreach Team has been very busy and here are some of their recent projects. Anyone with quilts to donate can contact Marlene or Yvette before June 30th to make arrangements. However, we now are pausing both pickup and distribution of donated quilts for July and August, our traditional summer months off.
Otherwise we happily encourage our members to continue to "quilt on" as we will resume our efforts come fall to collect finished quilts. The response has been so amazing and we extend the biggest thank you to our members for sharing their skills and talents and sewing time and stashes and positive comments of support. It has been a great Pandemic project!
Eleaner is happy to have finished this beautiful quilt for her granddaughter. All hand quilted.
Gail made this "Rainbow Quilt" for her seven year old granddaughter. It is a scrappy quilt-as-you-go quilt. Thank you to those who shared their scraps with me. You may have to look closely but they are in there.
Dorothy has made this lovely table topper and is looking forward to the day we can all be together in person.
Joan from Sew Creative donated 12 of her beautiful store samples to our Outreach Program. As you can see in the photos below, they are all lovely.
Thank you so much Joan!
A lot of members have not lost their love of quilting. Our Outreach and Program committees have collected over 88 quilts this year and many are on their way to a large Indian Reservation north of Moosonee to meet a need there.
Deb has researched the world of sewing machine needles. Go here to see what she has found out and to see the tip of the month.
Welcome to our April Show and Share. Enjoy viewing the handiwork of our members.
Marlene has four quilts ready to be delivered for outreach. They were "quilted as you go by the row."
Julie just finished hand quilting this beautiful quilt.
Willy made this lovely quilt using leftover triangles.
It is all machine quilted.
Gail finally finished this lap sized UFO after making a queen sized quilt from this fabric several years ago. "I obviously bought a lot more than I needed to have this much left over! Because of all this stay-at-home time, I mainly hand quilted it except for the final borders."
Pauline has been busy making charity quilts. These two Charity Quilts for children are made with the same fabric.
Two table toppers . . . memories of Florida (sniff, sniff). Pauline saw these made up in a Florida quilt shop and made a couple. A closeup of the fabrics gives you a closer look at the small Florida-themed fabrics
Susan purchased a kit at the guild auction. No one else bid on it, so she paid the opening bid. The masks help to cover some rather prominent jawlines.
Susan just finished this Schlep bag as a result of a workshop held some time ago.
Check here for Memory Quilt ideas and tip of the month from Deb Owens.
