Dorothy has made this lovely table topper and is looking forward to the day we can all be together in person.
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.
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.
Saturday, March 20, 2021 is International Quilt Hanging Day this year. Here's a taste of the beautiful quilts our members had hanging that day.
Eleaner is happy to finish this beautiful magenta medallion quilt, her design, her colours, her own hand quilting.
Deb has a great tutorial on paper piecing and the hint of the month here.
Our quilters continue to keep busy. Here are some of our latest creations:
Dale just finished sewing this little fabric basket. I found the instructions on the Craftsy website.
Donna just finished this recently, complete with yard (metre) stick for hanging. There is an ice rink at the Delaware farm and I found this row by row when cleaning the sewing room.
It has an appropriate place to go.
Several members participated in the Mystery Quilt online workshops. Below you can see the beautiful results of the following members: Dale, Debbie, Maria, Mary, Judi, Meribeth, Louise, Linda, Marlene, Yvette, Julie, Mary Lou, Gail, Jane and Susan.
Donna waited for Christmas to be over and started this quilt on January 4. When the top was finished, she had hardly noticed the lockdown or snow storms.
It will be a gift for her daughter whose farm is called Star Point Farms in Carrollton, Georgia. "I think it is appropriate and can’t wait for the time to come to deliver it there. Thanks to the Program Coordinators for arranging this Mystery Quilt project with Laurie."
Ellen now has her mystery quilt done and says,
"It's too bad my unpicker ran away with a travelling spool. Said 'enough!' It needs a break. So I think it's run off to Bora Bora where it won't be overworked. Farewell unpicker, I have fond memories of this quilt being one of kind."
Deb has the tip of the month and great scrap quilt suggestions. Go here to find her ideas.
