Quilt Guild

February is when our Guild, (Prince Edward County Quilters' Guild) has its annual Pot Luck.  It was another roaring success and everyone had a great meal.  I really love how we didn't plan what to bring and there was an even amount of sweet and savory dishes.

We also presented our finished "Whisper Challenge" quilts.  This is based on the game, Telephone, that we used to play as children.  Teams were formed and one member drew a sealed envelope with a photo to use as inspiration.  Once they were finished, they passed their project on to the next team member who used that as their inspiration, and so on....

The REAL fun started when we all presented out finished projects and usually the last person's project had no relation at all to the photo.  There was much laughter and excitement.  All the team projects will be presented at our bi-annual quilt show to be held this July!  Sadly, I forgot my camera and don't have pictures of the presentations.  

My Whisper Challenge is shown here.  I had a photo of a dresser with some pretty bottles and jewellery on it.  I call this mini wall quilt, "My Favourite Things".  Sorry, I don't have a copy of the photo, but I am quite happy with the results here.

There was also a good turnout of show and tell, in which I showed my "12 Days of Christmas" QAL and finished "Indigo Stars".  

See you all soon,
