Workshop: January Fun Day

Mark your calendar for this fun event! Each year we do something a bit different for our January event, and this year we will be celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday. A potluck birthday party!

The Canadian Quilters Association is hosting a nationwide quilting bee, with the goal of making 1,000 quilts for donation to Ronald MacDonald Houses across Canada, and we thought this would be an excellent project for our annual event. The quilts are to be made of 12 ½”slab blocks, and we can just provide blocks, make them into quilt tops, or finish entire quilts. Each block is to contain at least one piece of the specialty fabric being issued (by Moda and Nortcott) for Canada’s 150th birthday. As long as the shipment arrives on time, we will have some of this fabric to give out at the November guild meeting, and again at the January Fun Day. You can find instructions for the slab blocks on the CQA website at Our very own Sue Forshaw will be teaching how to do Quilt As You Go. What a great project for that technique!
