June Update!

News from The Country Quilter!

Another June has come, and although everyone has been busy quilting, we won’t be able to display the results at our Garden Quilt Show again this year. Hoping for a return of this popular event next year!

Quilters continue to be generous with their time and talents. Twenty-six baby quilties are ready for delivery to the Queensway Carleton Hospital baby nursery. Enough bed quilts were donated to the Veteran’s Home to cover all the beds. Toddler quilts are ready to go to Iqaluit when Covid restrictions are lifted and our contact person is travelling again.

The winners of the Bee Busy contest were Marilyn Fairfull and Tracy Parr Labbe. Well done!

Marilyn’s bee-u-t-ful quilt!


Hopefully in July, after we all get our hair cut, we will again be able to gather in the back garden (at a distance). I know that many long-forgotten projects have surfaced. Today I saw a 26-year-old UFO that is now being completed.qui

The shop is now open, (effective June 22, 2021) on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, from10-1pm with a limit of 3 shoppers in the store at a time. Email: thecountryquilter@hotmail.com with any further questions.
Staff news: Sue is now a Grandmother!! She has a wee grandson, Alex born May 30th. Congratulations to the family. 👶
