MBQG 2012 Quilt Show

By 3 October 2012Quilt Show

By all accounts our 2012 quilt show was a resounding success! Many thanks to all who made it possible from Guild members to committee members to our sponsors and friends. The weather Sat. and Sun. did not cooperate but people came out anyway.

The pipes are up, quilts are coming in to the hall.

All set and ready to go! We had 82 quilts hung from 43 members. Each one was unique and wonderful. This was a fisrt show for many of our members and their quilts hung with great pride. Our visitors had an opportunity to vote for their favourite quilt and the winners are…..

Diane MacMillan for her "Boston Common – Finally Done", Diane won the coveted CQA ribbon.

Gloria Turner's (and Edith Taylor) "Baltimore Album" was a very close second and honourable mention.

And Linda Finley won the wallhanging category for "The Habituation of Mr. Morris".

Congratulations to the winners and to everyone who entered. Lots more pictures can be found on our Flickr Photostream page here.

Sandra Roch's "Windswept"

Once again we held a Silent Auction to raise money for CTV's Christmas Daddies fundraiser. Twenty wallhangings were submitted made to the theme "Celebrate Fall". Every wallhanging was bid on and we are thrilled to have raised over $1700 for Christmas Daddies. This money will come back to Lunenburg County to support families in need at Christmas. Pictures of all the wallhangings can be found here. Thanks to everyone who made a wallhanging and to everyone who bid on them and congratulations to the winners!

Big congratulations to our Scarecrow team of Lynn Whyte, her husband Ken, Lee Cassidy and Cathy Drummond! Our scarecrow entry of the shoemaker and his elves won the Best Scarecrow in the commercial category. Congratulations again! The pressure is on for next year!

The winner of our quilt raffle "Quilter's Garden" is Al Bramley from BC. Luckily he was still in the area and was able to pick up his quilt. And we found out that his wife is a past president of  the Surrey BC Quilt Guild. They said they would send us a picture of the quilt on it's new bed when they get home.

Thanks again to everyone who made the show possible and everyone who came out to see it.
