Show & Tell

Here's a bit of eye candy for you to enjoy! 

I will occasionally post show and tell as it comes in .... 

This is a lovely log cabin quilt made by Peg. A lovely gift for a grand daughter's graduation. 

Sandra dug deep to finish off a couple of old WIP's .. I love the cat photo bomb. Its not clear if she is amused or unhappy.

Sandra has been doing a wonderful job with her free form quilting.

Keep sending me your goodies!

May - Virtual Meeting

Our guild met last night via Zoom meeting and it was really wonderful to see everyone and connect again! I think we were all pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to get together and to have so many ladies join was great. We had 24 members connect last night! 

Many members have been cooped up for two months and really making some wonderful quilts! We decided to continue with our blog and share our wonderful show and tell!

I have been busy busting my stash and made two small throws. ( I just had one fabric diet slip up and ordered some fabric online!) 

Gladys is our place mat queen. They get prettier with every new set. 

Phyllis has been a busy quilter ....

These sweet baby giraffes were made by Yvonne and gifted to a sweet little girl.

Dallas tackled this big monster - she dares to call herself a beginner! 

No one makes more than Helen ... 

Lorna was busy this winter with these two beautiful quilts

And Rae had a productive winter in BC

These two quilts are made with the 'Home Quarter' pattern by our pals Kathy & Lori

 Sandra finally finished her tea pots! Lovely

And tulips to tease us that spring should be here!

Please forward any of your show and tell pictures to me and I'll post them up here ...

Moving Forward

We have made the decision to hold off on anymore quilting related gatherings for the next two months. The April retreat, meeting and UFO will be cancelled. Time will tell us how to proceed further. We shall regroup in May to make further decisions.

Please keep sewing! Please keep making, creating, dreaming and loving everything about your life!

Think of the show and tell we will have this spring! I can't wait.


Keep moving, get some sunshine and keep your pins sharp!

March Meeting

Our regular scheduled meeting will take place this Tuesday at the United Church. I plan to be there and hope many of you do as well. If you are unwell or unsure, please look to the government of Manitoba website and follow our local regional health authority recommendations. I have included the link for MB updates here from Shared Health ....

Its a wonderful time to be a fabric hoarder!

We had a nice get together this week for our January meeting. 

Our crowd thins out a bit after New Year's as many of our members fly south for the winter. If you have any news or pictures you want to share, please send me an email and I'll be sure to add it here.
