Walk To Brock #8

Woohoo, we made it to Thunder Bay, ON!

Fantastic work, everyone! I’m receiving large inch amounts as you get ready for your quilt shows. We burst though the final provincial border and landed in Thunder Bay, home of member guild Thunder Bay QG, who contributed a large number of inches to help get us here.  

Visiting Fort William Historical Park would be lots of fun for a day as would hiking in Kakebeka Falls Provincial Park to see the second highest falls in Ontario.

With a good push, we should be able to get to Brock University in time for this year’s Quilt Canada conference.  The deadline for reporting your last inches is June 11/2014 – the opening day of Quilt Canada 2014. Inches reported after June 11 will not be counted.  We are so close, let's do this!

Notes received from the guilds:
The Orchard Valley Quilters Guild's says that even if we don't get all the way to Brock, at least the challenge was an inspiration for quilters to show their work - and some used it as a drive to finish those UFO's.

St. Thomas guild sent these photos of some of their quilts that were measured for this challenge. Apparently they have good fun doing the challenge each month as one member walks around with the tape measure and another member copies down all the inches and adds them up.

Come on quilters, rev up those sewing machines, shine up those thimbles, and let's quilt our way to Quilt Canada 2014!  We can do it!
