Hands Across the Water


On June 5, 2017, the Mayne Island Quilter’s Guild hosted over 60 ladies from the quilt guilds on Pender, Galiano, Saturna and the Cowichan Valley Heritage quilters. 

Early arrivals to the island were treated to a wonderful breakfast, and a chance to try “Flower Pounding”.   Others arrived in time for a delicious lunch, and lots of yummy desserts. 

We presented over 17 challenge quilts, with the theme “My Canada”.  Our guest speaker was Krista Hennebury.  Her blog can be found here

Below are links to photos from Andree Fredette from Saturna, and a collection of photos from various members in a Smile Box format.

Thank you to everyone who attended.

We were lucky to have Krista stay for two days and teach her Cutting Garden & Temperature Check patterns.   Photos of these workshops below:
