Have you purchased tickets for this Quilt Draw at our February meeting? Stay tuned, the winner will be drawn in April! This quilt is simply gorgeous, it’s hand quilted with applique & embroidery. Wishing the best of luck to all participants and thank you for supporting Comfort Quilts!
Thank you Elizabeth Dicrescenzo for our Mini Workshop on two colour binding. It’s always great to learn new techniques, tricks, and tips.
The Double Wedding Ring Quilt workshop was held by Janet LaMonte prior to our meeting. Well done everyone!
Thank you Joyce Martin-Bruce for the update on 2018 Plowing Match. The Quilt Block Competition ended January 31 with 35 blocks being submitted for the theme “We Grow For The World”. Winners of the competition will be announced in May. Currently, eighteen of the blocks most representing the theme will be sewn into our raffle quilt. The committee has decided that second prize in the raffle will be a Tobe Cobe wall hanging and third prize will be a themed table runner.
Many thanks to Northcott fabrics who have supplied us with 20 yards of beautiful green for sashing and backing of our quilts. On Wednesday, Rachel DeBruyne, Jane Jenner and Joyce Martin-Bruce will be assembling the raffle quilt top which includes as fabulous rendition of the IPM logo which was hand appliqued by Annette Angood. Because of all the different techniques used in the Competition blocks, it will be necessary to have the raffle quilt machine quilted. It had been decided that the remaining blocks from the competition will be made into a quilt for the host family.
Next meeting for the IPM Quilt Show Committee is at 5:30 pm the day of the Quilt Guild meeting. All volunteers are welcome.
Our meeting program was such an inspiration! Our guild members shared their very first & the latest quilting projects. You can find more photos on our Facebook page.
All prepared Cuddle Quilt kits have been taken for assembly, thank you everyone for your help!
