Maritime Beauty Workshop

Yesterday was such a fun time, gathered with a very enthusiastic group of women attending one of the Nova Scotia Fibre Fest workshops. The Ralston Room where we met was huge; it was a real treat to have so much space.
We spent the day foundation piecing, sewing curved seams and making bias binding.
These are the only pictures I took, and they were from the beginning of the class. Hopefully, the participants will all be sending along a picture of their finished Beauties which can be posted here. My thanks go out to the Cumberland Quilt Guild, Carol in particular, for all the work they did to organize and make the day a success.
After the workshop, we all went upstairs to take in the guild's quilt show. The number of quilts, the diversity in colours and patterns, and the beautiful sanctuary of Amherst's First Baptist Church all combined to make a spectacular exhibit. It was a "wow" moment entering that space.
