June Banquet - The Singing Quilter

The London Friendship Quilter's Guild enjoyed a delicious dinner and wonderful entertainment for our annual end of the year banquet at the Highland Golf and Country Club on June 10, 2010. The dessert was just what quilters would have ordered - Chocolate!

A big thank you to Carol V's Dad for making these cute spool holders for everyone that attended the dinner. Everyone also received a FQ and a spool of thread. One of our members, Lorraine S. also made blue and gold yo yo's (the guild colours). If you ordered salmon for dinner, you received a blue yo yo and if you ordered chicken, a gold one. They looked so pretty on the tables and the servers didn't have to interrupt our conversations when serving us.

President, Rose B, introduced our guests, Cathy Miller, the singing quilter and her husband, John Bunge.

Cathy and John entertained us with songs and stories about her quilts beginning with "12 Step Plan for Quilters". "The Sampler Quilt" tells the story of this quilt by using block names throughout the song:

Kass the Kangaroo has even taken over Cathy's blog and is writing all about his adventures.

A very appropriate backing and binding on this self portrait quilt:




These hexagons are 1/4"!!!! Cathy did this in the car on trips...amazing!
