The guild has come up with some Special Projects for you to challenge yourself with. All members are encouraged to participate. See below for more information.
Circles are universal. The challenge is to make a quilt with circles. Further details are here.
Bring 4 fat quarters or 4 quarter-meter cuts to the April evening meeting for our brown bag challenge.
We'll be swapping bags every month for the next few months, with new instructions each month on what to do
with the bag contents.
At the end of the challenge you will be able to make a lap quilt for yourself or for community quilts. Join the fun!
Each month we present a fun, quick challenge, to use as an opportunity to try something new, as a diversion from a more serious project, or as the only project you can squeeze into a busy schedule.
Challenge 2: Design must include complete or incomplete circles, with at least one floral or floral-inspired fabric.
Challenge 1: Design must be based on the log cabin block. The colour red must appear in the front of the quilt.

What's a journal quilt? A journal quilt is a small quilt that you make to document an event in your life, an emotion that you are feeling, a time of year, something you would like to remember, a new technique or maybe a series exploring something of your choice.
