Hello Fellow Quilters, We have been graciously invited by the Simcoe County Quilt Guild to attend an upcoming speaker event.
Time: 1:00p.m. on Thursday May 27th Subject: Guest Speaker is Bill Stearman and his presentation is Backpack Quilt Zoom Show referencing the fact that the quilts will be at home. He will discuss his quilt journey and the effects that they represent up to our current time.
Check your email from Julie Stewart for the Zoom Access ID and passcode. Please note this is for KQG members ONLY.
Hello Ladies This month we will be putting our Log Cabin Fever quilt-top together. Those of you participating in the BOM, will receive a copy of the “Block Layout sheet”, which will show you how to layout your squares to finish your quilt top (It will be much like working on a jigsaw puzzle).
I also wanted to mention that we will be having a draw in Sept. and Nov. The first draw in Sept. will be for those of you who finish putting your top together. A photo of your quilt top has to be forwarded to me, in order to have your name put into the Sept. draw. Each prize is for a $25. gift certificate. The second draw, in Nov., as per our Guild custom, will be for a totally completed quilt – quilted, bound and labelled. More information will be sent out closer to the time of the Nov. draw.
Thank you to HummingBird Sewing and Thimbles and Things Quilt Shop for the prizes. If you would like to take part in the Sept. draw, please send me a photo of your finished top and I will enter your name. The draw will take place on Sept. 8th at our Exec. Meeting.
Thank you to those of you who continue to send in photos of your monthly BOM projects. I can’t wait to see your finished tops.
Congratulations to Diane. The first assembled quilt top photo received by Darlene. Her name will be entered into the September draw.
Congratulations to Darlene too! She shared her photo with me. Great job ladies. I can’t wait the see more.
For those of you interested in the 2021-2022 QAL, I will be your “host” and I can’t wait to get started. Please let me know what you would like to make. Click here to Vote.
Enjoy the rest of your long weekend. Be sure to read the May Newsletter!
