February 15th Becky Turner is doing a workshop on the One Block Wonder quilt. You need 6 repeats for this technique. A 60 degree triangle ruler is needed. A second workshop is being arranged with the date to be announced.
Our Outreach Committee in Action
Cheryl Jacobs presented the quilts of valor to Marcia Majoor who is the London representative of the national registry of the organization of the Quilts of Valor of Canada. She was very pleased to accept them for the organization. Our members should be very proud for donating their time and skills to this worthy cause.
As the new head of our outreach for the Huron Perth Quilters guild I donated 5 children's quilts to the Stratford Children's Aid Society in Stratford. I also donated 10 quilts to Optimism Place in Stratford. It is a residence for women and children after they have graduated from the Battered Women's shelter. I must say that both places were very appreciative of our generosity in donating these quilts. There were a few oohs and ahhs over the quilts.
I have been working on some quilt kits this summer for the members to possibly quilt in our next year.
