Charity and Quilties Update

In light of the provincial and local efforts to curtail the COVID-19 spread, we have decided to pause our Charity and Quilties Programs to respect the stay at home order.  We ask you to hold onto the Charity quilts and Quilties that you have been making until the lock down ends. At that time, we will be able to share resources to finish these projects and collect them. The Queensway Carleton hospital, the maternity parents and our charity partners appreciate all your contributions and we encourage you to continue. Thank you for all your efforts.
Of course, we will continue to meet online. We would like to remind you to submit pictures of your finished quilts for the 2 Presidents’ Challenges (flying geese, and architectural) to Brigid by Sunday May 9 so that we can prepare the submissions for the Viewer Choice awards. Please use President’s Challenge as your subject line.  Looking forward to your submissions.

Leslie, Liz, Lynn, Dianne, Pauline, Judith, Debby and Brigid

November news

Special Offer – Melissa’s Book

We heard that Melissa’s second book – Edge to Edge with the Walking Foot – is selling out locally. We have arranged an order of her books directly with her and can save on the shipping cost. The cost will be around $30 but will be confirmed when we get the invoice. If you would like one, let Leslie know. When the books arrive, you can pay for them by eTransfer and arrange delivery with Leslie. Lesliewhitby6@gmail.com

November Charity Block Challenge

For those interested in participating in November’s block challenge, please find the directions below.  This block pattern was taken from “Block a Day” by Lucinda Ganderton.  The block is called “Square Cross”
For our challenge, I ask that you use low volume white on white as the background, and your choice of color for the cross. (See two samples below).
Deadline for block:  I am aiming for these blocks to be completed by next meeting in December – of course if you need extra time, please reach out to me so I can wait before piecing the top together.
Once you are finished the block, please email me and I will arrange for pick up or drop off.  (Drop offs are in Kanata North and Merivale)
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Carol
