September was a busy month for our members.
First, a workshop was held, taught by Beth CameronShe showed us how she made leaf prints using ColourVie pigments.
This is Beth’s beautiful quilt that we used for inspiration.
All the participants brought leaves from their yards and gardens.There was a large selection of leaves from which to choose!Pigment was painted on the back of the chosen leaf….Then the leaf was carefully positioned on the fabric to make the print.The room became quiet, as everyone concentrated on their tasks – unusual
for a room full of quilters!By the end of the day, there were many racks full of printed fabric pieces.I think everyone enjoyed their day of creativity!
UPPER CANADA VILLAGE FALL FAIR AND QUILT SHOW
This year, our guild, along with several others participated in the annual show.
Our volunteers headed to the village on Friday to hang all the quilts.
Saturday and Sunday brought a steady stream of visitors from Canada, as well as many other countries. The fair provided fun music and entertainment for all ages, as well as a large tent full of exhibits.
Here are the quilts that our guild shared…… Thank you to all our volunteers and quilters!
