Picnic in the Park Canceled

With regret, we have to cancel today’s in-person meeting for the Kanata Quilt Guild. The showers were to start about 9 am but as of 6 am, it is pouring and thundering. It just will not be fun standing in this rain no matter what efforts we take to celebrate quilting and quilters.Thank you all for volunteering to make this a great session for our guild but the rain puts a damper on it. Maybe we can find some opportunities to meet and celebrate over the summer.

Have a wonderful summer and we’ll “see” you in the fall. Leslie

Pattern correction – Anniversary Quilt Along

Please note, there is an error in the True North Sampler Quilt Pattern, original version showing fabric in blue/green/yellow. The Canadiana version showing the red/black/blue Canadiana fabric is fine. 
 
Make these changes to the Beaver Airplane Block cutting instructions.   Blue fabric instructions should read:
 
“Cut 1 piece, 9 1/2” X 3” and label as C1.”
 
Also, for background fabric cut pieces B2 and B3 at 4” x 6” for easier piecing. 
 
Sorry for any frustration this error may have caused!  Beth
