Another fun Guild meeting and my Project Linus donation for this month

The Kincardine Sunset Quilters guild met this morning. In the winter it is always a worry whether or not we will be able to get there. It was my turn to drive and the weather was OK. It was snowing a little and the plows were out but nothing really bad.
For today, participants were asked to bring their largest quilt or a picture of it. I knew that was not going to be me. I have made about a half dozen queen size quilts but prefer the more manageable sized lap, baby and even up to a double bed size quilt. There were some stunning quilts on display. One member brought a Cathedral window quilt all done by hand while she and her hubby traveled. We broke into small groups to talk about the largest quilt we had made and tips and tricks for doing that. It was very informative. Last fall we were supposed to bring our smallest quilt but that had to be postponed so maybe next year.
Pictured today is the quilt Churnplus that I tested for Jan from the Colorful Fabriholic (here). She does not have a pattern available for this one yet but it is in the works. The directions were very good and there were a few very minor suggestions that I made to help clarify certain portions. I donated this one to Project Linus at the guild meeting today. The daughter of one of our members made us beautiful labels to put on our Project Linus quilts. So I picked up a couple. I am aiming for 10 donated over this guild year. Five done, five to go. Piecefully, Joanne

  1. Thanks for the shout out and for pattern testing for me. Your ChurnPlus quilt looks terrific! I'm glad your quilt is going to such a worthy cause as Project Linus.
