In the photo below you will see our happy CQA Rosette Winners for Best Of Show. Alene with her hand quilted log cabin, and Adele with her lovely snowman quilt. Alene also won our Viewers Choice Award with her log cabin quilt.
The Round Robin showing is always very exciting. Our challenge was to either make the item a square or a rectangle. How do you think we did?
We have a new comfort square for the next two months. The pattern is available at Faktor's. We are making 6 1/2 inch friendship stars. Bright coloured stars with white and black or black and white background.
We are going to sell raffle tickets on our Canadianna Quilt for a couple of weeks during homecoming this June and July. We are not asking our members to take a book of tickets home, but if Marg phones you to come out and sell tickets on Main Street or at Extra Foods, please consider volunteering a couple hours of your time. We think the extra funds would be very nice to purchase fabric for our comfort quilts.

We spent the day getting ready for the big quilt show. We got a quilt to the basting stage for the frame on the stage, and we partly assembled a quilt to show one in progress. Kathy had to watch the sewing crew that day, as we all wanted to continue on and complete the quilt top.
The meeting that evening covered every one's jobs for the quilt show.
The list of the new executive was presented as follows:
Past President Evelyn B
President - Lorna H
Vice President - Kathy S
Secretary, Eileen M
Treasurer - ?
Membership - Raye W and Yvonne H
Programs - Marg F and Lori S
Cookies - Robin M
Blog - Sandra D
Special Events - Rae B
Comfort Quilts - Marg H
Of course we presented the next level of our round robin. We were to emphasize the existing shape. What do you think? I think they all look just great.
' Here is our Past President Rae showing off her completed Past President's quilt.
This is a lovely photo of our 2008 Quilt of Comfort and Remembrance.
