Susan has challenged us to do one using the fabrics in the kit to make it into whatever design you choose in any size you want (i.e. quilt, wall hanging, etc) and to have it finished for the March 2017 meeting so it can be part of the PEIMQG display at the Centreville, NS Quilt Show in May 2017. It would be wonderful to show some Canada pride given it is our country's 150th birthday. What a display it would make!
This inspired the following 3 quilts:
This photo inspired the following 2 quilts:
What a great showcase of talent and creativity! Great job everyone who contributed.
Also the "Canada's Big Quilt Bee" celebrating Canada's 150th birthday and benefitting Ronald MacDonald House, info can be found here. Heather hopes to have an upcoming sew-in day devoted to this charity project.
and so did Catherine, inspired by Monet's "Lily Pads".
Roberta had a few items as well. This wallet:
Her "Snow Buds" wall hanging. So fun!
and her "Urban Pods" quilt.
Jean had a gorgeous Tula Pink Fat Quarter bundle" Slow and Steady", which she acquired on her holiday in British Columbia this summer.
Heather J showed us her completed quilt (which was a previous Queen Bee swap from 2015) based on a block tutorial from the Irish MQG website.
and her Tic, Tac, Toe Queen Bee Block quilt from the Beehive Quilts tutorial at www.blossomheartquilts.com.
What a great meeting!! Stay tuned for the Frank Lloyd Wright Viewer's Choice vote.
