Stack n Whack

For those of you that are interested in the oneblock wonder part of the stack and whack or even if you just want to see what your hexies will look like with the fabric you have chosen take and picture and upload to this site and try it.

It works really well and is pretty amazing.

2016 Crocus Quilter's Guild Show

Over the weekend out little guild hosted a lovely show (if I do say so myself)! We had three vendors from around the province join us as well.  Thank you to Shari and Leroy from Road 17N, Leslie and Laura from Keystone Quilts and Wendy and George from Fabriculous!

 Friend of the guild - Kathy Schwartz  (Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting) traveled from Flin Flon to take in the show and these pictures represent the show from her perspective.  Thank you for sharing your pictures with us!  With approximately 180 articles handing in the show, know that these pictures are a taste of what we had to offer!

September Meeting & Show and Tell

First let me start with a reminder that quilt registrations for our quickly approaching show are due on September 20!

If you missed our meeting and haven't signed up for any jobs at the quilt show you can contact Genny before she contacts you ;)!

Here is a preview of some things that our members have finished in time for our upcoming show.

Love the binding on this one that Cindy made.

Pat tried her hand at machine quilting instead of hand quilting.

Gloria was trying to hide but I caught her and she looks proud of her beautiful work!

Fran completed this cheerful quilt.

Bev tried out hand pieced hexagons with the challenge fabric from the Nimble Thimbles in Gilbert Plains.

Bev also completed two table toppers for one of her daughters.  This "Rock Candy" one.

And this "Detour"one.

Bev also finished this Bali tile quilt with fabrics she picked up at a quilt retreat in Fabriculous a couple of years ago. You should come see it at the show as this picture does not do it justice.

Joan finished this quilt which name escapes me.  I know it had something with "purple" in the name.

Cheri finished this cheerful Quarter Sections quilt.

And Sandra finished a more pastel version of the same "Quarter Sections" pattern.

Sandra also finished this fun birthday table runner.

Amy did a whole lot of sewing to use up some of her scraps with this one!

A cute fox quilt Amy is making for an Instagram exchange - her new addiction!

And Amy's "Row by Row" quilt that won the prize at Road 17N this summer.  Amy traveled to many quilt shops to get all of the patterns and had fun putting the top together.  For more info on the Row by Row Experience click here.
