Come See Us & Get your Tickets (229)

My Lakeside Quilters Guild is having a Quilt Show THIS Saturday from 10-4 here in Chestermere showing off our wonderful collective works of quilting and camaraderie as a Guild.

We have TWO Amazing quilts this year for Raffle to raise funds for our local charities and community.

First Prize is this stunning New York Beauty (double + size) all batiks, a mixture of Paper Piecing and piecing, with stunning machine quilting.


Second Prize is and ABC's Eye Spy Quilt - the perfect quilt for your niece, nephew, grand-son or daughter, or your very own daughter or son...all paper pieced using all of the novelty fabric we (our Lakeside Quilters Guild) could find - that was sure fun.

Who doesn't LOVE a fun back on a quilt - for those of you who know me ...I LOVE them!!

Tickets will be for sale starting this Saturday and will be $1. each for your chance to win 1 of these two quilts!!

Plus there will also be a Quilter's Garage Sale where our Guild Sisters will be selling their own goodies, kits, fabrics, etc.

AND yours truly will have a table setup selling all of our favourite goodies from Pastimes Online!!

So if you're wondering what do do on Saturday or you and hubby want to take a nice drive out to Chestermere, we'd love to see you!!


Single Girl Project (215)

For sometime now, I've wanted to make a quilt where I get to cut out and sew all of the blocks or parts of the project whenever I want instead of having a month by month project (which I do love btw). I purchased this pattern Single Girl from The Quilting Loft in Portland a couple of year ago while on holidays...I fell in love with it them and I'm still in love with it today...

I know it had to be polka dots and lucky me I had 36 different polka dots in my stash...can you believe that I even had to cherry pick some of them out!!

Recently we had a sewing weekend with my guild and I decided to get a head start on this project. Sew, I cut out all of the templates, labelled my fabrics, sorted them in their respective quarters and began cutting out the pieces for my twelve blocks...

Here's the pattern...what do you think? Super fun hey!!


Guilds and What's New? (146)

Hi Everyone, what's new with you? How is your Summer now that it's coming to a close what did you do? Where did you go?

I'm also curious if you belong to a Guild, if so which one and where? I'm also curious about your Guild format like how often do you meet? Where? How many people? and What are some of the things that you do throughout the year like challenges, mystery quilts, charity projects and so on...

I'm looking for some good ideas and what's worked for you guys and what do you love about your guild!! I belong to two at the moment and possibly three and they are all so very different and in good ways so the more I hear from all of YOU about what you like and what works the better my guild can be when we incorporate new ideas:)

Thanks Ladies...

Also if you haven't entered in for the chance to Win a Year long Subscription to Quilters Connection magazine be sure you do, I will be drawing next Friday!!
