The guild is growing....

Wow! It has been a while since I updated my blog.....but time and events have been constantly moving...

I was away on business to our beautiful capital city, Ottawa, last week and there was a bit of unpredictability in the weather, but my flights did not get cancelled or delayed.

The exciting news is La Guilde Acadienne de Clare is growing.
Here is our youngest member , Danielle, proud as can be after finishing her very first quilt... This is one of the objectives of the guild; passing on the skill of quilting to our younger generation so we can keep the art of quilting alive!
outgrew our meeting place and had to move to a larger facility. We now meet at my church parish hall, and our new home has ample space.

Our Sewing day for the members was this Saturday.. and two of our members...
Nora and Alisa did a wonderful job teaching the class.
The project they choose for us to work on... "Whack and Stack" or "Kaleidoscope

Alisa's quilt is gorgeous and
Nora brought two of her beauties for us to drool over....

everyone was excited about working on their project we hardly had time for lunch...
But it is always fun to eat lunch together..Space is not lacking and everyone had a good time ...

Our teachers had us make a "mug mat" so we all went home pleased with our day..
Here is mine....When I first watched Nora and Alisa demonstrate the block I was certain it was a pattern I would not do a big quilt with; but now I think differently.. It is fun to make and so exciting to see it come together ...There may be a "Whack and Stack" quilt in my future.
