And a new season begins...

We had our introductory meeting for the new season on Sept. 14th.

Our 'fun' monthly activities are:
2 1/2" Strip Swap 
Swapping 2 1/2" strips.  Marg will tell you how many strips you need to bring to each meeting for the swap, and what the colour selection is each month. You will get a different strip from everyone in the group.  .

Mystery Quilt
You will be making a Queen or King size quilt for yourself.  Shirley will provide a new set of instructions every month.  Participants should bring in their completed work every month to get a prize.  Woo hoo!!

Our 'special' challenges include:
The Panel Challenge
In October you must bring in a fabric panel.  If you're like me, you have several of these that have been languishing in your basement for a few years.  These will be swapped between the members of the group.  You must make a quilt with it by the June meeting.  There is no size requirement.These quilts will be donated to a charity, most likely for children.  **Batting will be provided by the guild.

Canada's 150th Celebration Challenge - 
To celebrate our country you are invited to make a quilt - this will be for yourself and you do NOT have to sign up.  The minimum size should be 160" perimeter, so 40 x 40 or 20 x 60, etc.  Bring the completed quilt to the June meeting and we will be awarding Viewer's Choice prizes.  

At our next meeting on October 12th we are hosting Laura Coia from Sew Very Easy.  Link HERE.  You are welcome to join us - there is a visitor fee of $5 if you are not a paid member.
