See the video from our Home on the Farm Quilt Show & British Tea!
We had a wonderful time at the Home on the Farm Quilt Show & British Tea - with over 176 entries and a Tea Room and vendors. There were cloth quilts and barn quilts. Thank you to everyone that contributed to the success of this show.
For anyone that missed the show - we will have the quilts at the Quilt Tent for the International Plowing Match in Kemptville from September 20 - 24, 2022. Be sure to get a quilt ticket for the raffle ticket.

QUILT BLOCK CHALLENGE HOME ON THE FARM: YESTERDAY, TODAY & TOMORROW
Thank you to everyone who participated in the IPM 2022 Quilt Block Challenge!There were 72 quilt blocks completed and returned by the November 19, 2021 deadline. There were entries from Ontario, Quebec and Saskatchewan. It was delightful to see the diversity of styles. The creativity and talent that went into these works produced blocks that will make their mark in our community's history.
The blocks will be used to create the IPM 2022 Raffle Quilt, and then there will be another quilt made for the 2021-2022 Ontario Queen of the Furrow. Depending on how many blocks are needed for these two quilts will determine if a third project is undertaken.
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE QUILT BLOCK WINNERS!
IPM 2022 Quilt Block Challenge Presentations were made to the winners on December 21 at Charles Street Quilt Retreat in Spencerville.
