This newsletter blurb is coming to you live from Quilt Canada. I have seen a few people from our guild as well as folks from the Ottawa area. This is my second day here and there is so much to talk about and be inspired by.
I would like to highlight the Youth Challenge. I was blown away by the quilts. A group from Belleville worked with 10 youth aged 5 and up and created some fantastic pieces. They worked on PD days and went through machine safety, cutting and then piecing and appliqué. I have long wanted to get a group like this underway and feel inspired to do so in our area.
Then there's the Trend Tex challenge where I saw work by one of our members.
The Ottawa Modern Guild has a special exhibit as do Quilts of Valour, Fibre Art Network, and Cantik Batiks.
Of course, what would a quilt show be without shopping! I may have done a bit of that!
Getting to guild business, I want to thank everyone who came forward for next year. I look forward to sitting in the audience for a while... I will try to keep up with my UFO's and have things for show and tell.
Enjoy the summer & happy quilting,
