October 19th Guest Speaker Pauline Farey

 October 19th

Our Guest Speaker will be: Pauline Farey
Another delightful episode in the: ‘What was the Judge thinking?’ series.
Please join us on October 19th when our favorite Quilt Judge, Pauline Farey, will return to talk to us about why judges withhold first prizes due to border issues.
Pauline has been quilting for over 40 years and is a certified OAAS Quilt Judge. She has promised to explain what quilt judges are looking for when they evaluate the borders on your quilts.... why border problems occur.... how to fit a border correctly.... and how to create the most
effective borders for your quilts.
We are sure that you will enjoy Pauline’s witty insights, and that you will come away with some new ideas to consider when you are designing the borders for your quilts.

UFO One Block Wonder

Marjorie Graham writes,

I’ve been working on this quilt top with a Civid -19 influence.... I had about 20 blocks left out from over from making the One Block Wonder Stack and Whack quilt we made about 3 years ago.  The blocks kept turning up when I was looking for other material.  Finally decided to get to them:).  
Will have to wait to get some batting to finish all the quilt tops too, but getting lots of sewing done.  


The front,
And the back!

Quarantine Quilts April 3, 2020

Bev Cooper  writes, 

Like many other quilters I’ve been spending a lot of time in my sewing room. This is My Enchanted Garden. My first wool appliqué project started in 2016 with Linda Prior-Hobbs. There’s nothing like jumping in at the deep end and although it has taken me 3 1/2 years to complete I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.  Wool and cotton appliqué on cotton.

Danielle writes... Greetings from Russell!  I showed your email to my daughter who lives in Kemptville. She placed her quilt that I made for her for her Wedding on her veranda.

The second is a quilt I made. I just thought it was cheerful.  Thanks for this.
