The Cornwall Quilters Guild is hosting the first 2017 show in this part of the province that will display its own Canada 150 Quilt, as well as other commemorative works, to mark our country’s sesquicentennial.
The Quilts on the Seaway Show will take place April 21 (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and 22 (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) at St. John’s Presbyterian Church, located at 28 Second Street East. Tickets: $6.
“At a 2016 Interguild meeting for Eastern Ontario guilds, it was decided that each guild would create a quilt commemorating our celebratory year,” said Diane Cooper of the Cornwall guild. “Enthusiasm was strong in Cornwall Quilters guild which resulted in the creation of a vintage style Crazy Quilt as well as the Canada 150 quilt.”
From Cornwall the local collection will travel to numerous guild shows being held in Eastern Ontario as part of a group of commemorative Canada 150 quilts. In addition to this sesquicentennial display, approximately 20 heritage quilts will be loaned by the Cornwall Historical Society for display at the Quilts on the Seaway 2017 show.
