Our annual "garage sale" was a great way to start off this meeting with many interesting items to choose from to fill those inevitable gaps in our own stashes! Many members wore happy smiles as they loaded up on new goodies.
Lana Dean gave us an update on the charming log cabin quilt with the creative farm scene on the back which she showed us at our February meeting. She made the quilt along with a number of other quilters for auction at the Ottawa Valley Farm Show in mid March. It was sold for a whopping $7,600 which was all donated to CHEO (Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario.)
Barb shared many tips with us including:
Barb's son is fascinated by wolves as evidenced by these 2 quilts in her collection.
Barb finished off her captivating show with her personal Canada 150 quilt project in which she included the crests of the 3 provinces in which she's lived: Ontario, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia.
Barb owns the Quilters Inn quilt shop in Cameron ON where she also teaches classes and does long arm quilting for others. See Barb's Facebook page for more information. www.facebook.com/QuiltrsInn
