Visiting The Northern Lights

This past weekend I had the pleasure of visiting the Northern Lights Quilt Guild in O'Leary, Prince Edward Island.  It was overcast and very grey when we crossed the Confederation Bridge;  sky and water were practically indistinguishable.
 The Island, however, was beautifully clad in fall colours.

 Our accommodations were as beautiful inside as they were outside.
Friday night's Trunk Show and Saturday's workshop were both held in a lovely room at the Community Centre. The guild is very fortunate to have such a terrific space, with attached kitchen facilities, and wi-fi in the building. We had a full class working on Maritime Beauties.
These pictures are of the beginning of the projects;  I *know* the students will send along pictures of their finished pieces! :)

 Lillian brought her lovely little Featherweight, a perfect machine for foundation piecing.
 It's always so fun to see the different colour combinations.  There were lots of batiks being used.
 A couple of the students chose to use Christmas prints.

 How gorgeous is this, with the blocks all laid out and ready to join.

It was a lovely trip, and I look forward to seeing pictures of the finished Beauties. A sincere thank you to the Northern Lights Guild for your welcoming hospitality!


  1. Looks like so much fun, Karen! I hope everyone will share their finished pieces so we can all see! XO

  2. So you were hired to be their teacher for their retreat? What lucky ladies!

  3. So glad you had a good trip Karen. Lucky ladies to gave you! I'll look forward to photos of their projects.

  4. Oooops! That's have you, not gave you.....
