Welcome to the start of the 2021-22 Quilt Guild year. It’s a new year, but not quite back to normal yet; we are still meeting via ZOOM and our Show & Tell remains virtual for now. Below are some of the wonderful works members submitted.
Guild members are joining with Vanessa Genier, founder of Quilts for survivors and adding to the 400 plus quilts for survivors of Residential Schools.

Dee O’Connor: Quilt for survivors top waiting to be quilted. Improv design by Dee. Was a meditative process in its constuction, no plan, no rules, sewn outdoors and my first “large scale” use of open seam pressing
Linda Lake: Motorcycle quilt with the provinces licence plates as they were scheduled to take their first trip to the east coast with their trailer last year when retiring. It of course never happened so it gave me a year to finally get it done. It has a highway down the middle of the back to speed them on their way.
Linda Lake: Back
Elaine Hook: A project that I started about six years ago out west at a Retreat, and finally finished it! (Un-named..)
Elaine Hook: French Twist
Jan Ward-Shipton: This is a baby quilt I made for my granddaughter (expected to arrive the first of December). I machine quilted it using free motion and ruler work techniques.
Carol Darou: This is a quilt I made for a couple from our church, the applique patterns are from a pattern called “Zootropolis”. The pockets on either side have little stuffed animals in them.
Dee O’Connor: Love Squared. Pattern by Lindsey Weight. 37 x 46. Machine quilted with oh so soft backing
Louise Gour: Life and work has been getting in the way of my sewing “leisure time” for a while! I hadn’t done any sewing since last April ! With back to school being very different for everyone this year, I decided to make some fun pencil cases for the grandkids. I sent them off with some new school supplies a few weeks ago. They were fun and quick to make. I think they helped with getting my sewing “mojo” back. Now I’m looking forward to some of the workshops!
Glenna Churchill: A quilt kit I got in Nova Scotia. The twin size quilt is made on point and quilted by Glenna Churchill for donation to the caring Community Quilters.
