Still Friends

London Friendship Quilters' Guild received the following email from The Halton Quilters Guild.  If any of our present members remember this Quilt and the part that LFQG played in it, we would love to hear about it.

Still Friends - 25 years later!
Your Guild was one of the 60 Quilt Guilds that took  part in the Friendship Quilt.  Along with two individuals, there was a block representing every Province and Territory in Canada.  You can see it again at our Quilt Show!
Halton Quilters Guild presents “Stitches in Our Time”.  The Quilt Show will be held at the Crossroads Centre, Burlington, Ontario on Saturday, May 2, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, May 3, 2015 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Friendship Quilt project was started in the Spring of 1990.  Along with your block, you submitted information about your Guild ie. General information, format of meetings, block done by, and anything of special interest about your Guild or area.    The information gathered was compiled into a book and keyed to the blocks in each panel.
In 1991, the Friendship Quilt with the information book was ready to travel and for the next four years, it travelled back and forth across Canada to be featured at participants’ Quilt Shows or special events.
We thought your Guild members, if they were in the area,  might be interested in seeing The Friendship Quilt displayed  and reading the information book from 25 years ago.
