May is Quilting month in Canada!

We are reminded by AQS Certified Quilt Appraiser Diane Shink that May is Quilting month in Canada!  

Diane hosted an old fashioned quilting bee with Montreal West quilting friends to entirely hand quilt her entry in our 2012 War of 1812 Quilt Challenge.  This quilt and 25 others will be displayed in our Traveling War of 1812 Quilt Challenge Exhibit.  

Diane transferred the image below to the label of her quilt. She sent a note with the photo telling us that her fingers were sore after all the hand quilting including the historically accurate knife edge finish. 

See this stunning quilt in person and the rest when our Traveling Exhibit comes to a venue near you.
