Information about the February BOM

Those of you who have made the February block will have found that there are two HST’s remaining after the block has been assembled.  I would suggest that you bring those two extras to the meeting along with your block.  I also have a couple from previous BOM’s.
It occurs to me that if we save all these extras and give them to the orphan block table at the end of the season, some creative quilter among us could probably make a very interesting modern quilt using these colourful HST’s.

If you haven’t made the February BOM yet, the instructions for making the HST’s in the February BOM should read:

Take two of the 3 1/2” background squares and place them, right sides facing, on two A squares, then place one 3 1/2” background square on each of the B,C, and D squares.   ( Note:  Save the two 2 1/2’ background squares for the final assembly)

Welcome to the Fraser Valley Quilters’ Guild

The Fraser Valley Quilters’ Guild is a non-profit Society. The purpose of the Guild is to bring the joy of quilting to the public by way of shows, displays, and demonstrations, and to bring ideas and learning experiences to the members by way of workshops, guest speakers, and demonstrations.

Guests are always welcome with a free drop-in for the first meeting. There will be a fee of $10.00 for non-members for special guest speakers to help cover costs.

Motivational Day

September 10, 2019

Our meeting was cancelled in February due to winter storms and we are delighted that the Motivational Day was able to be rescheduled. A special thanks to all who have agreed to be presenters. We have several of our own members (listed below) talking about a Favorite Quilt. Find out what inspired the quilt’s concept and creation, any new techniques learned, who the designer is, where they were when the inspiration consumed them or any other information leading up to the completion of the Quilt.
