Deb Beirnes Workshops

On Jan 9th & 10th, two different groups of LFQG members got together with
Deborah Beirnes for fun days of  "Scrap Magic"  We learned many new techniques to make scrappy blocks using our stash. These scrappy blocks can be turned into wonderful quilts.  Some of the techniques used were strip piecing, different methods for making 1/2 square triangles, flipped corners (that made bonus 1/2 square triangles), and double pinwheels.  Deb also showed us how to properly put a new blade in a rotary cutter.

There were many great blocks being made and all the participants went home with some great resource material that they could use to continue using up their stash

Inter-Guild Meeting

LFQG was asked to host this year's Inter-Guild Meeting.  At this meeting representatives from Ontario quilting guilds get together to discuss different subjects that affect their guilds.  We will be hosting this meeting on Mar 28th,2015.  On Friday the 16th of January the Organization Committee for the Inter-Guild Meeting got together for their 1st meeting.  Five guild members have also volunteered to look after the lunch and coffee breaks.  An email poster has been designed and sent out to the guilds.  The information has also been put on the Ontario Quilt Guild Facebook page.  A format for the Inter-guild meeting has been roughed out.  The next 2 months will be busy organizing the meeting!
