Guild challenges are intended to be an enjoyable way for members to choose to connect, learn and create in a quilting process or project. Here are some current challenges in which you are invited to participate.
Here is a list of what's happening for the next few months.
Happy 25th Anniversary to the Mountain Cabin Quilters Guild and all its members,
As a group we have so many wonderful things to look forward to for the next several months. The ZOOM platform is the key to continuing with our meetings on a regular basis. New and returning members are welcome to join our guild at any time and participate with us during the year ahead.
There is are great speakers lined up for the first half of 2021.
The annual Artistic Visions Show is going virtual.
We had some yummy recipes posted for the Christmas Pot Luck Dinner.
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
Our November Stitch and Learn was on making pillowcases using the quick and easy Burrito’ style assembly. These make great gifts for family and friends. Kids particularly like flannel pillowcase in fun themes.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
