Last Thursday's meeting was just fantastic!!
It started with lots of action happening at our "Vendor for the Month" tables.
Pam Denesyk from "Mad About Patchwork" in Stittsville was visiting us again.
There were lots of purchases being made.

Next was a mini Trunk Show of the "Quilts Of Valour" that have been made over the past year by guild members.  The quilts will be delivered in May.

 
 
Mibsie and Edith showed us the block that we will be making for next years Quilts of Valour.

After the break, Jacquie Gering, our speaker for the evening was introduced.  Jacquie is originally from Kansas and is now living in Chicago.  We are honoured to be the first international guild to have Jacquie as a speaker,  It was very interesting hearing about Jacquie's background and how her family has influenced her quilting.  Her "Modern Quilting" style  with unique quilting techniques and fabric choices showed us a new and different approach to quilting.  It was a wonderful talk and trunk show!  To visit Jacquie's blog, Tallgrass Prairie Studio, click here.
