Scheduled Spring 2022
At the February 2021 guild meeting, Colleen Bell, Quilt Show Coordinator, updated members that the quilt show committee is planning to move forward with preparations for a quilt show in spring 2022. Please note this decision is entirely dependant on the committee’s ability to secure a venue considering many venues are not taking bookings at this time pending updated health regulations. Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
However, there are 3 vital committee roles which must be filled in order to proceed: quilt show treasurer, quilt show PR/marketing coordinator and raffle quilt coordinator. Without volunteers in these roles, the quilt show will not proceed. If you are interested in one of these positions, please contact Colleen Bell or any member of the executive.
2020 Raffle Quilt – Looking Back
The 2020 Lions Gate Quilter’s Guild raffle quilt was based on the Journey pattern in Edyta Sitar’s Patches of Blue book, but has been modified to 6” blocks.
The quilt was 90” by 90”.
The overall effect was very simple and straight forward, blue blocks against a cream background. On closer inspection you could observe that 14 tone-on-tone stars had been quilted into the upper right quadrant, and 14 trees had been quilted into the lower left quadrant. The trees are meant to represent our roots, our family, our support as we journey through life. The stars represent our dreams and ambition. The centre has a directional compass motif quilted into it.
The hand guided custom longarm work was done by LGQG’s own Carol Chernov of Twin Creek Quilts.
The backing fabric was a beautiful blue paisley on a cream background, by 3 Sisters for Moda.
