Grand Quilters of Fergus

Wednesday and Thursday I was visiting with the friendly quilters of the Grand Quilters' Guild in Fergus.  Colour was the topic of interest both for the evening lecture and the workshop the next day.
Thanks to everyone who participated and made me feel so very welcome.  I hope to see some of you at the Wellington County Summer Arts Workshops this July.  My 5 day workshop "Art Quilts the Easier Way" is being held in Elora July 4-8.

 The Grand Quilters have had a block of the month going all year and the big reveal will be at the June meeting.  The blocks were all basket blocks with a monthly theme.
Judy, who hosted me, is just about finished hers and it's absolutely beautiful.
Don't they look like a friendly bunch?  Look at those smiles!

This guild takes part in many community projects including making pillow cases for a young adult rehabilitation centre, place mats for Meals on Wheels and many other worthy causes.

The Colour for Quilters workshop was held at the Racetrack/Casino in Elora.  The facility was perfect for a colour workshop with lots of natural light.
Thanks to all the members who signed up and participated in the workshop.  You all get A+.

Blogger has been off line for past couple of days so my apologies for not posting this sooner.
