Waterloo County Quilter's Guild Trunk Show

I'm back!

Lack of posting has been due to several different circumstances, some unexpected (like a bad case of sciatica).

Another reason was that I was away, for a bit, doing a Trunk Show as Guest Speaker for the Waterloo County Quilter's Guild at their May meeting.

I visited a friend along the way and then spent a few days with Charlene Stevens who now lives in Kitchener and is a member of the Waterloo guild but was, for several years,a member of my guild, the Kirkland Lake Mile of Gold Quilter's Guild and a former student.

We had a great time visiting several quilt and fibre art shows and a few quilt shops.

Here's a few pictures from the Trunk Show:

Their wonderful lending library - there are as many books on the other side of the room

I had the opportunity to meet Renske Helmuth, a member of the Waterloo guild, who organized the making of the wonderful quilt shown below.  Learn more about it on her blog here.

This African Theme quilt will be auctioned at the Mennonite Relief Sale. (sorry I can't remember the actual name of the quilt)

These were all small finished quilts made by guild members that Renske organized and designed into this beautiful quilt.  Two or three guild members sewed it together under her direction.

This quilt blew me away!!

There was enough small quilts left-over for another quilt.  Renske has the design in place and this to take place after a well-deserved rest.
