Summer has come and gone .. School is back on and the Guild members have been busy  getting things going for the next seasons. 

Last year we had gone into the elementary school in Meteghan and brought some squares for the students to hand sew.  

Here are photos of the kids sewing their blocks 

Members of the guild having a Quilting Bee, hand quilting the quilt. 
 here is the finished project
This quilt was made by the students of Stella Maris School Grades 4. 5 and 6. Assembled by members Charmène  and Paulette. Hand  quilted by the dedicated members of La Guilde Acadienne de Clare.Thank you to the members who came to the school once a week to teach the students and pass on the art of quilting to our young generation and future quilters. 
A fun and rewarding adventure !

As for me, I apologize to all of you, my followers  for being so  lapse in keeping my blog  up to date. On August 27th our family was faced with the worst declaration regarding  my husband's health, one can have . He was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. It is inoperable because it is in the right middle and lower main stem bronchi involving the trachea .We are presently in Halifax for 10 treatments of radiation which will be followed by aggressive chemo therapy. This is not at all what one predicts will happen in their family. It is not a nightmare because a nightmare you can wake up from it....  this beast  does not go away ... 
 Enjoy every moment to the fullest  . 
One day at a Time! 


  1. Joan, I am so very sorry to learn of Gerald's diagnosis. My prayers are with you both. Live each day to the fullest. Hugs..

  2. Keeping you all in my prayers as you go through this difficult time.

  3. You and your family are in my thoughts
