Celebrating our 2nd Anniversary at MLQ

We are starting our 3rd year at MLQ, continuing with our dream of sharing our passion for quilting, fun and friendship. This past year we had 11 sewing days that included themes for Christmas in July,  Oktoberfest & Grinchfest. We held our 1st annual Quilt Camp at Edenvale as well as a day long Kid’s Quilt Camp in Nanaimo. We delivered another 16 quilts to Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. The Quilter’s Constellation BOM wrapped up in August with a show & share on Protection Island, bringing requests for “what’s next?” We finished the year with an online mystery quilt, Just an Illusion. It was definitely a busy year! And that doesn’t include the dozens of quilts that Joan has quilted on Maybelline. :)

We continue to offer uninterrupted sewing, fun and friendship. A fresh, tasty lunch will be served, along with day long coffee and tea service. Plus instruction on anything you may need.

2013 SEWING DAYS: CHESAPEAKE LANDING: 5900 Ferry Road, Ladner, BC January 26th (full) March 23rd, May 4th and June 15th

Cost: $45 cash or cheque payable to Maple Leaf Quilters.  Time: 10:00am-4:30pm

EDENVALE QUILT CAMP, ABBOTSFORD: April 12, 13, 14 — $375 double occupancy and $400 for single. Reserve your spot with a $100 deposit. This weekend includes Friday’s dinner and buffet style meals Saturday & Sunday. Ongoing hot beverage, filtered water & fresh fruit will be available throughout the days.

This is the perfect place to work in a small group setting of 12-15 quilters. There is a large, bright sewing room, a comfy lounge with couches & a fireplace and lots of trails for walking. There will be two small projects offered this year and they are both fat quarter friendly. The first is a 24″ round table topper using a 10* mini wedge ruler.

The other project is from Anna Faustino’s Simply Stunning Woven Quilts. We will explore two of the techniques and I can promise you that it is addicting!

 

 

The one to the right is made with two contrasting fat quarters. And the one below is made using two contrasting log cabin blocks.

These two quilts are 22″ square.

Happy Quilting….Valerie Raye
