Penny Candy2000
Happy New Year! Seems like only yesterday we were all watching our computers when the year 2000 arrived and we survived! Above is a wall hanging Penny Candy I made in the year 2000, it has always been one of my favourites. Machine Pieced and hand quilted, it was inspired by the traditional Chinese Coins pattern, made with hand dyed and commercial batiks. Hard to believe it is now 2018!

We had a good turnout for our first afternoon meeting of the year. We will continue afternoon (1pm-3pm) meetings for February and March, back to evenings in April. We know this affects those who work, but for so many afternoon meetings in the winter months are much appreciated.

Show and tell is always such a wonderful “show”, thanks to all who share their quilts with us.


Kristina’s find at Value Village, a great rescue!


Rose’s scrap quilt, hand pieced and hand quilted. Lots of sparkles!


Linda H’s “Bird’s” from a Lynne Edwards workshop a few years ago! It is never too late to finish a UFO!

We are starting a new venture – “Slowing Quilting Afternoons” at the Biscuit Eater Cafe in Mahone Bay starting this Monday January 15 from 2-4pm. Bring along a “hand” project and enjoy the company of other members while enjoying a delicious treat in the Biscuit Eater’s library! We have another afternoon planned for January 29. Further dates TBA.

More pictures from our January Show and Tell can be found here on our Flickr Photostream and pictures from Jamie’s program on Japanese paper can be found here. Enjoy!
