December Christmas Event

This December KRQ decided to have a dessert social at our meeting. We hosted the event at Keswick Ridge United Church and decorated the area for the evening. After a few quick business items were dealt with we moved on to sample some desserts.

After dessert we had a game to get to know each other better, we exchanged our homemade Christmas ornaments and secret pal gifts. We introduced our UFO Contract, our new cookbook and our Quilt Show Challenge. We are all looking forward to seeing finished projects and inspired ideas for the challenge.  


As usual, we ended with our Show & Tell
Elizabeth, Marilyn and Kathy showed the bags completed at the workshop given by Gail Mitchell.

Darcy completed this quilt designed for a customer requesting cardinals on their quilt.

Debbie completed several of these

Correction to Mystery Quilt

Hi mystery quilters ,  I missed one step in this months addition to the mystery quilt instructions so that has been added and a picture in the wrong spot has been moved. I hope this did not cause many of you problems.

November 10, 2014

We began our meeting with an amazing display of Gail Mitchell's many ideas. Gail talked about many of her designs and how they came about. Many of these are also featured on her blog Quilt, Knit, Run, Sew ... and then do it all again!.

Gail made fascinators for herself and children for the Royal Visit on PEI! This is Gail sporting her fascinator.

Below are many of the ideas that Gail shared with us.  We all came away truly inspired to try some new things and cannot wait for our workshop with her this weekend!

Gail explained how she quilted and finished these mug rugs. Perfect idea for KRQ!
After our business meeting we shared all of our new projects at Show and Tell

Kathy A finished this quilt after seven years of embroidery and hand quilting. Beautiful!
