Brown Bag Challenge

The next challenge will be a brown bag challenge.  There will be brown bags which contain a piece of fabric and a theme.

 Further details to come.




Canada’s 150 year birthday is in 2017.

Make a 10” finished block (your block should measure 10.5” square) depicting what Canada means to you.  Do not trim your block to size.

You must use some of the red fabric which is supplied.

The blocks will be put together for a guild Happy Birthday quilt or wall hanging.  At the interguild meeting, which I attended in Kemptville, they talked about a collection of Canada quilts from the attending guilds.  This would then be circulated among the participating guilds for their quilt shows.

Due at the May 2016 meeting


Presidents Candy Cabin Challenge 2015

I have been saving chocolate wrappers for quite some time and I think I have enough.

For this challenge you will draw a wrapper from the bag whose colour will be the focus for a log cabin block.  I will provide a paper piecing pattern if you wish to use it.  Or you can make any version of a log cabin in any size you wish.  The pieced top must be at least 4 blocks and must be quilted and bound.

Due date is the October meeting
