It's been a great guild year - have a wonderful summer, happy quilting (hopefully on projects that will be on display at our April 2019 quilt show), and we look forward to seeing you in September.
Congratulations to our guild member Rennie Hickey whose beautiful little quilt was juried into the 2018 CQA/ACC National Juried Show in the Miniature category.
This stunning quilt raised $1,250 for equipment purchases for the Arnprior & District Memorial Hospital at the Arnprior Regional Health Foundation’s recent annual "Knight in the Maritimes" dinner. Pam Ross, the delighted purchaser, is pictured at the dinner with her new quilt which was displayed on the stage throughout the evening.
Many guild members have contributed to this project from its design, fabric selection, making the individual blocks, assembling the top, quilting it on the long arm, and attaching the binding.
Guild members were targeting completion of their mystery quilt tops for our May meeting and what a treat it was to see 17 beautiful tops of the All About Town row quilt. And at least one quilt was completed.
Quilters received 4 sets of instructions, each for one or 2 rows, with the final set revealing the overall layout, and instructions for sashing and the decorative pieced borders. Fabric choices were made by each quilter.
The next step is to complete our quilts in time to display them at our quilt show in 2019.
And that includes any quilt tops which were still works in progress in May!
Here are some close up photos of the quilt tops.
