A huge THANK YOU to those who attended the workday on Saturday to work on Community Projects. A good number of pillowcases for Transition House were completed, as well as a few Christmas tablecloths for Wheels to Meals. So thank you to all who attended and worked hard all day, as well as those who could not attend but dropped by to turn in what they had done at home. I could not attend as I was teaching on Saturday, so thanks to Monica W. who sent me this photo, showing some of the pillowcases that were completed.
EDIT - Wed. Oct.1.- 70 pillowcases have been delivered to Transition House and Gignoo House - they were gratefully and joyfully received!   :)

Again, I apologize for not being able to photograph the program and Show and Tell at our September meeting. Thanks to Lee M. who sent me this photo from her phone of Mary B's beautiful Storm at Sea quilt. Mary does such lovely work and we are so happy that she continues to travel from Grand Manan to attend our meetings! (She gets the prize for travelling the furthest distance!)

If anyone who brought projects for Show and Tell in September has a good clear digital photo of your piece(s) please send me the photo(s) and I will add them to our Show and Tell Gallery.

There are some new quilts listed in our "Quilts for Sale." Be sure to check them out, and if you know of someone who is looking to purchase a quilt, please consider directing them here!

I hope you've been able to attend a Quilt Show or two in the last few weeks- there have been several nearby- KV's annual show, and both Sussex and Calais this past weekend. If you are travelling to Nova Scotia this coming weekend, you might be able to take in one or both of the following shows - one in Halifax and the other in the Mahone Bay area. I cannot get the IWK Show poster to load here but the info is all on the sidebar. Below is the poster for the Mahone Bay Guild's show.


  1. Interesting to see how much cheery yellow was used in this group of pillowcases. They'll certainly add spark to the rooms.

  2. Hi Linda and FQG members,
    Just to let you know that Elm City Quilters' Guild is having a local show (yippee, no long travel!!), on November 7th and 8th at the Gibson Memorial Church with proceeds going to Grandmothers Helping Grandmothers. Come one come all as they say! See you there. Kathy F.
