Congratulations to our guild member Rennie Hickey for her prize winning quilt "Refuge" at Quilt Canada, the Canadian Quilters' Association (CQA) national juried show in Toronto, June 14-17.
"My garden is my refuge for 3 months of the year and I often feel inspired by it for my creative endeavors! I wanted to capture how sunlight brings my garden to life and so this quilt came to be. I used raw edge applique, thread painting, and Inktense pencils in the making of this quilt." -- Rennie Hickey
Rennie's "Album" quilt was entered in the TrendTex Challenge where the theme was "Stitching A Canadian Memory" .
Best of Show was won by Colette Dumont of Saint-Romain, QCwith her beautiful "Fleur de Glace".
