We have been remiss in updating this Blog about the amazing progress our Quilt is making under the watchful eye of Bev Crouse as many White Pointers continue to add their stitches.
This past month in addition to the golf, beach, pool and bunny blocks, Bev introduced us to the Cottages and, on April 28th, the historic 1928 Main Lodge Block. This historic block is so close to the original design, it almost looks like a painting we have on the wall back here at White point – resemblance is amazing! We are so proud of the work and integrity that Bev has brought forward to this project and so very thankful to have her working with us to realize this dream. Be sure to check out Bev’s online Quilt Shop too call The Quilters Net!
We’ve taken the Quilt on the road many times recently too.
April 28:We hosted a Quilting Party at the Liverpool Firemens Breakfast where the kids (young and old alike) made bunny patches and added their stitches to several of our panels – including the beachstone fireplace block that will be a focal point of the new quilt.
April 29:Guests at Saltscapes Expo stepped up willingly to add their stitches to our blocks as they shared their memories. Several people said adding their stitches was the main reason they came to the Expo – we were so delighted to have so many people participate. Bev again was fabulous and patient as everyone added their own touch to the blocks.
May 3: Golf Club Members attending their members meeting added their own stitches to, yes, the Golf Block!
And we’re not done! We are hitting the road to host a Quilting Party with the Queens Quilters on May 24, hoping to share our quilting story at the national Quilting Conference in Halifax May 31. From June 21 – 24, we’ll be hosting a Quilting Party in Toronto as we participate in the Saltscapes Expo on the waterfront. In between we hope to get to a few schools, add in a few more Parties in and around Nova Scotia too – whew…many stitches to be added yet!
Here are a few pictures from our past months adventures!
