Our final meeting of the quilt guild 2016-2017 season featured a delicious pot luck dinner and a great opportunity to visit with fellow guild members before our summer break.
Show and Tell, as always, featured several lovely quilts made by our talented guild members.
And we easily surpassed our goal of 25 Canada 150 themed preemie quilts for the tiny babies born in 2017 and cared for at the Rich Little Special Care Nursery at the Civic Campus of the Ottawa Hospital. A selection of these adorable little quilts were shown at the meeting and are pictured below. Thanks to everyone who made one or more of these lovely quilts!
The meeting and dinner was enjoyed by 55 guild members and one guest.
Many members registered early for next year and 2 very lucky members were rewarded when their names were drawn to win free memberships. Due to the success of the quilt show fundraising, an extra free membership was offered this time.
Congratulations to Barb Devries and Marilyn Erskine!
Happy summer everyone and we look forward to seeing you in September!
