25th Anniversary Challenge

Silver Strong – 25 Years 

The guild is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year so we chose a theme to honour that.  The theme is Silver Strong – 25 Years 

You are asked to create a block using the following guidelines:
either an 8 1/2” or 4 1/2” UNFINISHED block using a piece of the fabric that was distributed at the guild meeting in September.  You are also asked to put the year you joined the guild (or approximate if you can’t remember somewhere on the block).  

If you need the fabric for the block, there is still some available and can be obtained by emailing

TOUCH QUILTS :  We now have ‘Touch Quilt Kits’!  

A complete fun and colourful package to make a lap sized touch quilt top.  Tops are made with nine squares, three rows of three squares that are cut at 6.5” each before assembly.  Touch quilts are made of colourful fabric with varying textures. Add-ons such as pockets, Velcro and ties provide dementia patients with tactile and visual stimulation. Quilts are backed with flannel to keep them from slipping. Our guild continues to make touch quilts for the Bow Valley, they provide both warmth and security to recipients.

These are a fun and easy project, completed in several hours. If you’d like to have a kit, please contact the current keeper of the closet Karen at treas@mountaincabinquilters.ca
