Presenting...Charlene Wimmer!!

Our guild member, Charlene Wimmer

is the feature quilter at the Southeast Library

for the next month

in Oungre,Saskatchewan

displaying her talents in small quilt projects

We were honoured to

support and cheer her on

last week in her Debute!!
Every quilt has a story and she shared her thoughts behind her creations.

Great job,Charlene!!

She had quite the variety!!

My favorite is her 'Dead Dogs' Hanging.
Doesn't that just sound like an 'artist' title?
It is a tribute to the dogs in her life. Not all of them are dead....
BUT some of them are.
She promised to give me a 'family' deal on this one!!
Oh my Gosh...Charlene keeps me in chuckles!!
You go, Girl!!
Your guild,
The Block Party Guild

STARS Air Ambulance Quilt 2016

The Ashworth Bull Sale crept right up on us this year.

Who can believe it's March???

This is the quilt that was donated on behalf of our guild.

It is called Summer Skies

It was pieced and quilted by Terry Whitman.

We are happy to report it was auctioned for $2100 to Barry Bangsund.

Barry has been a huge supporter.

He then donated it back to be reauctioned.

It went for $1900 to the Canadian Cattlemen Association.

All money went to STARS Air Ambulance

Thank you for all the support!!
