A Celebration of Quilts XI - York Heritage Quilters Guild

The quilt guild that I belong to, the York Heritage Quilters Guild will be holding their 11th quilt show this coming November.  It will be held at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre in North York Ontario from Friday November 11th through to Sunday November 13th.  You can click on the "Art for Body and Soul" button on the right hand side of my blog to take you to the quilt show web site for further details.

The show is sponsoring the charity called Sketch, a Toronto organization creating opportunities for street involved and homeless people ages 15-29, to engage in the arts in a cross-discipline studio environment or in the community. The are holding a mini quilt auction of quilts that are donated by members of our guild.  I am currently working on one piece and will likely make a second one.  Here is a picture of my first piece.  I have finished the quilting. I have used a wonderful piece of fabric designed by Phillip Jacobs and next plan to embellish it with beads.  The piece will be about 12" square when finished.

So for those of you in the Toronto area, or if you are going to be visiting in November I hope you can come out and see the show.

Good luck with the show, I'd love to be able to jump on a plane and come see it but unless I win the lottery that's not likely to happen!! ;-)

Hi Vicki! I keep coming back to your blog and seeing if you have posted anything new. Today I decided to check the comments. I thought I had left you one, but I don't see it. I will definitely try to come to the York Heritage Quilt Show! It's always a good one! Our guild is having a show in October.
