Cannot keep the quilters down...

This winter has been harsh but nothing has stopped the quilters from creating beautiful art works. 
The guild was fortunate we only had a few cancellations 
nothing like last year.. so we were able to create. The members who attend the Sewing Laboratories are enjoying learning the art of quilting in its many forms.

Here is one of those projects ...and my version 

Everyone did a beautiful job and I will post pictures of them later.

 I have completed my "Family Tree" quilt by Laundry Basket . 
Free Motion quilting is all done now I just have to embroider the history of our family. Birth dates, marriage dates etc... 

I had so hoped I would be able to take a picture of this quilt on the green grass but I don't think that is going to be the case for a while.    

 As mentioned in the earlier post Member Marnie is going to give us a workshop on the "Little Tree" . 

Because of the large number of members who are  going to attend I made mine ahead of time so I could help at the workshop  and have the piece on display to help the members in choosing their fabric. What a fun  little project that turns out into a fairly large wall hanging ! 

Lots of upcoming events on the Guild's calendar. 

First one being our 4th anniversary celebration with an
 Open House on April 11 from 10:00 to 3:00. There will be "Show and Tell", Quilt in the frame to hand quilt and various demonstrations on different quilting  projects as well as quilting articles for sale.  For lunch rappie pie, tea, coffee and anniversary cake.

Come see us.
