Heritage Happenings...

Even though Spring has SPRUNG around here, the Heritage Guild members have not slowed down one iota!  Walking around the hall I saw all kinds of quilting goodies being worked on... 

Like this sweet wool block...This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago...and I'll be darned if I can remember taking it!  Yup, 'she's' sharp as a tack!  But what I DO KNOW is this is a VERY sweet wool project!  I'm thinking it's Sandy's....or Greer's...or Just Judy's...maybe Delore's or Glynis?  Yup...definitely one of these woolies!  :o) 

 We have some beautiful cross stitchers in our midst...

Some sweet hand applique....

 More woolie work...I know this is Greer's...it's a Bonnie Sullivan project and it's dang cute!
And Sandy was stitching her 'T' from the Let It Snow free bom from Buttermilk Basin!  I love her dark green flannel backgrounds...

And Glynis' sweet, sweet bird!

Now let's get to the big stuff....I'll let you wander...

And a close up of these wonderful table toppers...

A gorgeous afghan was knit over the winter months...so soft and pretty!


I love reading the labels!  Isn't this one sweet!
 This was Hazel's winter masterpiece....so bright and cheery and of course beautifully quilted!

This Spring runner was gorgeous too....with the smallest hand quilting in a turquoise thread!  Exquisite!

I love it when the hand-quilters get out the frame and work on hand quilting a project!

And look at what Glynis' husband made for her to display her wee quilts!  Very clever!  He used a bead board panel to make this wonderful and unique clipboard!

We pinned on the basket block so that you can see the board in action...CUTE!!  Wonder if he is taking orders?

 And check out the quilt that Glynis finished last year...She is donating it to a local charity to raffle off at their fund raiser!  VERY generous of her!!
 It is spectacular!  Hours and hours of work locked up in this quilt!  Wouldn't you be thrilled to win it!
 Glynis had it professionally quilted and it only adds to the beauty of this quilt!
 It's a WOW quilt for sure....Way to go Glynis!!
 And finally Tracy brought out her Jaybird Quilt top called 'Chopsticks'.  It's king size so you can imagine what a nightmare it is to maneuver!  She had a hard time getting the backing just right because of the size...By placing it on the two tables we discovered that she needs to add on more fabric! Darn!
 I hope we convinced her not to cut off the zigzags!  So pretty!  I love the pops of orange in the top  (the backing is also orange)!  This is going to be a wonderful wedding gift for her lucky and fortunate cousin!

So there you have it!  This was two weeks worth of sharing...and yesterday, being Easter Monday and a holiday, our group was a lot smaller than usual.  Small but mighty!!  :o)

Hope your Easter was wonderful!  The sun is shining here and I have plans to do some heavy duty Spring Cleaning!  It's time!

Have a terrific Tuesday, happy stitching and let the dust fly!~P

  2. I missed some nice quilts. Glynis' quilt is outstanding

  3. Some great show and share, loved those colourful arrow, that Robin Hood print looked sweet,

    What a prolific group!

  4. OMG it was a an over the top quilt show...wish Glynis' husband would make me one!!!!

  5. So many wonderful things here that I can't single out one for comment. But I know I want that clipboard. : )

  6. I love that you share so many beautiful projects with us. I can always use the inspiration to keep me motivated.

  7. What a wonderful generous gift from Glynis. Your group creates awesome quilt month after month. Way to go, Heritage Quilter's!

  8. I always love seeing the projects the girls are working on. I have seen a lot of the clipboard style frames and things, fun idea of little quilts.


  9. So much eye candy in one post! Glynis' quilt is amazing! A generous donation indeed. Is it paper pieced? The table runners are gorgeous too! Your guild is an industrious group!

  10. Another great show of quilts, one better than the last.

  11. That's a great donation Quilt Glynis made. Always good to see what's happening in your neck of the woods.

  12. once again you ladies have been creative some lovely makes and such variety here

  13. Small but mighty indeed! I love that turquoise hand quilting on the spring runner. Beautiful! And that clipboard is a great idea. Imagine a whole series of them down a hallway. Your own DIY gallery! Changed seasonally! Thanks as always, Paulette. :D

  14. OMG, I don't think I could part with that beautiful quilt that Glynis is donating. She is a very generous person. Love the clipboard, her husband is quite talented as well. I think a lot of quilters would love to have one. Good luck with the spring cleaning. I guess I'll be doing the same thing as we've sold our house in Saanichton and will be moving in June. Don't know where yet. It's going to be an adventure finding just the right spot.

  15. Hi Paulette - Love the pictures! I, too, am working on Let it Snow blocks and am having a little trouble with bumping and fraying of my pieces. I have been stapling them down and it was working but this piece is not laying so flat. Was wondering what your method is. Your pieces always look great. Thanks for your help in advance, Laura

  16. Oh my goodness! So many wonderful projects from some super talented ladies!!! Thanks for sharing!
