Gone Quilting in Powell River

We had a very successful visit to Powell River, the top of the Sunshine Coast. And, it WAS very sunny!!! We had a full house at Community Living Place with a variety of quilting skills and projects on the go. I taught 4 quilters not to be afraid of curved piecing while they made their Maritime Beauty table toppers. They were genuinely surprised that curved piecing is fairly easy if you use pins and go slow. I will post pics as soon as I see some completed pieces. The novice quilters from our last trip to PR finished their quilts, learning how to sandwich, quilt and bind. Lots of smiles and “when are you coming back” inquiries. Others brought quilt pieces from their “long been stashed in the UFO pile” to get help with finishing. They too went away feeling like they accomplished their goal and would actually complete the quilt. One participant started working on an I Believe in Blue¬†quilt with the enthusiasm only a quilter and hockey fan can bring! We also sold 5 more I Believe in Blue quilt kits…Vancouver has won 14 games, Maple Leaf Quilters has sold 14 quilt kits and continue to Believe in Blue and making another 2 quilts to add to the total.¬† All in all, there is a lot of satisfaction in putting up the sign “Gone Quilting.”
