President's Message - May 2016

 

May flowers, they are a hardy bunch! We have had some pretty cool weather this month and I marvel at how well my tulips and daffodils are doing. My very own tulip festival is in full swing. All this colour is a great inspiration for quilting, it makes me want to play with my fabric. Where do you get quilting inspiration from?

 

May is also a time of renewal for our various positions and executive - it's "election" time! Similar to last year, we will have a poster at the side of the room where you can indicate your choice of position for the next term. I encourage you to approach any of the executive if you have questions around any of the openings. If you travel, you may want to buddy up with someone and share the position. I want to thank the outgoing folks for all their work, our guild is richer thanks to everyone's efforts and dedication.

 

This is also our wake up call to get those UFOs finished for June ... Whether the president's challenge, the balance of the I spy squares, bed runners, border print blocks, improv pieces, etc...

 

I hope to have packaged blocks for the Canada 150 quilt at the May meeting ready to sign out. There are roughly 70 blocks that need to be made. These are all small blocks as they go in borders. We will need them back at the September meeting to complete the quilt this fall.

 

For those volunteering or simply attending Quilt Canada in June, enjoy the show. I hope to see you there.

 

Happy quilting,

 

Brigid Whitnall, President ADQG
