Summer is coming! If you are like many quilters, you struggle between wanting to quilt while enjoying summer. We invite you to join Lucy Gay, an award-winning quilter in the category of English Paper Piecing, to learn the basics of EPP, a technique that can be enjoyed both indoors and out.
Lucy will guide you through the basics of EPP while you make a small project and provide tips along the way. Class will be over zoom so you can participate from your front porch while enjoying all that summer has to offer!
A supply list will be provided shortly after registration to provide you with enough time to get everything together. A zoom link will be sent close to the class date.

Reaffirm - CQA/ACC MEMBER GUILD QUILT CHALLENGE 2022 

(MPQ PRESIDENT'S CHALLENGE II)          

The President’s Challenge II, tied to the CQA Guild Challenge, was particularly difficult to “get one’s head around”. Thanks to Judy Stupak, we do have a very worthy Manitoba entry. As there were no other entries, Judy will submit her entry to be displayed at Quilt Canada.  The winning quilt at this level will be decided by voters, so when that time comes,  you may support Judy and MPQ by voting.

Judy's entry is titled "I AM"

The concept of "I am..." came when putting together a puzzle of a kitten who looked in a puddle and saw his reflection as a tiger.

Description in 50 words or less:                                         

Every person needs to look at their reflection in a mirror and use words of affirmation to embrace who they are; reaffirmation is necessary. My personal words of affirmation are: "I am... a mother, grandmother, wife, quilter, fibre artist, crafter; I am … creative, curious, unique, calm, diligent, intentional.”   

Requirement: Guild Colours: blue, yellow and green with a touch of red

Technique: Raw Edge Appliqué
