Linda Smith aka “Scrapmaster”

On September 12th we were so pleased to host Linda Smith’s Trunk Show. The woman knows how to quilt! Here is a slide show of her beautiful quilts from the beginning when she was hand quilting traditional patterns up to and including her most modern quilts. She is a truly inspiring woman. Thank you Linda for sharing your story and your wonderful work-of-art quilts. Her blog can be viewed here.

September 12th – Welcome back

Join us on September 12th as we present Linda Smith as our guest speaker. Linda is a modern quilter and a member of the Maritime Modern Quilt Guild.  She is also a handquilter and you will see samples if you visit her blog. The blog will give you a sneak peek at her wonderful modern quilts – original quilts – fabric postcards and many other styles that she creates.  Her blog is aptly named:  Scrapmaster. Check it out.

In addition, we will introduce our strip exchanges and challenges. The show and share portion is always a treat, so please bring along your projects completed or incomplete and share with us. The 50/50 draw is starting up: bring your loonies!

Looking forward to a great year ahead.


Annual Meeting / Brown Bag Challenge

Monday, May 9th was our annual meeting. The meeting went very smoothly and we have a new executive in place. We are looking forward to a great year ahead. In addition to the meeting, it was also the brown bag challenge reveal.

The task this year, organized by Sheila Sutherland, was for participants to put three fat quarters into a brown paper bag  (known as the brown bag challenge – BBC). Each participant took home a bag – not knowing whom it belonged to.  The big reveal followed the annual meeting. As usual, the talents of our members showed in the beautiful creative work they did for others.  Here are some images from the evening (including a few show and share items).
