Autumn 2021

Enjoy all the award-winning quilts from the National Juried Show at the virtual Quilt Canada conference, including details of the Best of Show and Viewers’ Choice quilt, Winter Sunset, by Colette Dumont. Check out the prize winners in the TrendTex Challenge, and see who won the Ties That Bind CQA/ACC Member Challenge, and the the CQA/ACC Youth Challenge. And that’s not all! Find out what quilting means to Anishinaabe-Dene quilter, Laura Horton, and how quilts are an important part of gifting in her culture. Try one of two wonderful projects: make an aviation block designed by Melanie Rudy, or a festive tote bag designed by Jackie White. Learn about personalizing your quilt labels, methods for surface design, polyester threads and how to use them, block patterns on EQ8®’s BlockBase+®, and how judging works. Keep yourself informed by reading the notes from this year’s AGM. And here’s a bonus: Find out who is coming soon to a webinar near you from now ’til December!


Meet Canadian quilters up close. Learn new techniques and follow emerging trends. Enjoy regular features such as patterns, quilting tips, quilt challenges, and product and book reviews. We are keen to support the next generation of quilters too, so projects, tips and challenges designed specifically for young and new makers are included as well.
