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
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.
Brigid Whitnall, President
