It's Not too Late!!

First of all a big thank you to those who have sent me their quilt registrations. Are you still deciding what quilts to enter??  The deadline for registering your quilts for the upcoming Quilt Show on October 19 and 20 has been extended to October 14.  The registration form is on the left side of the blog.  Instructions for hanging sleeves are on the left side of the blog as well.  Don't be shy!!  You are all talented and your work deserves to be seen!!  The only rule is - the quilt has not been shown before at our past quilt shows.  It does not have to have been created during the last few years.  Please consider entering one quilt or more.  We need many more quilts  - bed sized and cuddle sized to ensure the success of our show.   So please print off the registration form, fill it in and bring it to the next meeting on October 11 or email it to me.

September Workshop with Bill Stearman

What a super day!  We learned how to create the Double Disappearing 9 patch with Bill Stearman who is a talented teacher.  We each made 3 different blocks using this technique.  Then we each made a block that was shared on the design wall. Anne took the blocks home and I am sure she will create something fabulous!


September Meeting

What a great start to our new year!  There are 68 returning members and 12 new members as of September 13.  Welcome to all!!

Thank you to Lorraine S. who was in charge of the booth at Home County and organized volunteers to help out.  This event earned some money for the guild and helped make us visible while we shared our love of quilting.

Edith spoke about the OutReach Community Quilts. There will be an incentive program this year again.  When you quilt and bind a quilt you earn a ticket that will be entered into a draw for a $100 gift card.  There are currently about 30 quilts that need to be finished.

Cathy S shared how she is stepping down as the head of the Comfort Quilt committee. This committee is under the OutReach Committee.  Thank you Cathy for all you have done and we appreciate all your efforts.  Bonnie H will be taking over as the head of the Comfort Quilt committee.
Cathy reminded us that the instructions for making the friendship block is on the Blog.  Currently we are asked to make two blocks using a dark and light fabric.  Bring completed blocks to a meeting and they will be collected by Bonnie.

The Quilt Show committee has been very busy, meeting since January. Mibsie is in charge of the Boutique and we have 5 bins of product to sell.  Amazing!!  There also will be a treasure box of unused "Good Intentions".  If you have a new pattern, tools, ribbon, and other sewing related "stuff" please bring to the October meeting so it can go into the Treasure Box to sell at the Boutique.

Please bring baked goods to the October meeting.  Please use a disposable container.

Anne is looking for members who would be willing to demonstrate a quilting skill/technique at the Quilt show.  Some ideas are Putting on Binding, Applique - hand or machine, paper piecing, making half square triangle 6 at a time, free motion quilting, disappearing 4 patch or 9 patch and English Paper Piecing. If your would be willing to demonstrate one of these or another skill please email Anne at  Quilteranne101@yahoo.ca

Quilts for the Quilt Show - Registration form is on the left side of the blog.  Yvonne is typing these up as she receives them.  We need many more so please email or mail your registrations as soon as possible. Wednesday October 17 bring your registered quilts to the Oakridge Presbyterian Church on Oxford Street starting at 4 pm. Please have each quilt or item in a clear plastic bag. Pick up your quilt on Saturday October 20 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.  If unable to do that, then pick up your quilt from Mary from 1:00- 3:00 pm on Sunday, October 21.  Details will be on the quilt receipt you will be given when you bring your quilt on the Wednesday. 

Our speaker was Bill Stearman    billstearman.com


Bill has been quilting for 4 years and while he says he has a BackPack show it really is very very close to being a Trunk Show.  He dyes much of the fabric he uses and he has taken many classes to learn this skill.  Bill has a sink dyeing system in his back yard that is fabulous.  He shared much about his very interesting life and we were enthralled with his many stories.  His quilts have been juried into national and international shows across North America. He is going to be a teacher at Quilt Canada 2019  which is being held in Ottawa. Bill creates his quilts using the Double Disappearing 9 patch.  Here are a few of his wonderful quilts:
