Leaf Bowl Workshop Fun

A group of members came together on Friday to enjoy a fun little workshop making Fabric Leaf bowls.

It was a fairly relaxed, informal session, some came for part of the day while others stayed throughout the entire day, We pressed, traced, cut, stitched, socialized and enjoyed some good laughs.

By the end of the day, 23 fabulous leaves were created and donated during the workshop. Many of the days attendees left with the intention of making several more.

Our goal is to see that one of these “bowls” is at each and every place setting for the Quilt Ontario 2011 Banquet. We have heard that many guilds right across the country are sharing in this initiative. What a spectacle it will be to see hundreds of these leaves adorning the hall.

We are still in need of many more if we are to realize our goal, so for those of you who were unable to attend the workshop but would like to get involved with this project, the pattern and instructions are available. To get yours, contact Jill B.

Final plans for for these leaf bowls can't be divulged at this time ( gotta save some surprises) but we do need to ask that they be brought in by March 31st.

Ooooh! Those bowls look very pretty!
