Summer 2020

Summer 2020 will be unique for most Canadian quilters as life revolves around slowing the spread of COVID-19 and spending more time at home with close family. CQA/ACC is proud to share the summer issue of Canadian Quilter which highlights home-based, quilting activities. Learn a quick way to keep quilting muscles relaxed and stretched, become inspired by dozens of member quilts all of which share their version of home, or start a slow-stitching project for yourself or with those youth wandering the household. All kinds of quilting goodness waiting just for you!
