Lollygagging to Lethbridge --5

It’s time for the next report on our trip to Quilt Canada in Lethbridge, AB for June 4-6, 2015. Our last stop was in Medicine Hat, AB. It seems that we are getting closer to our destination and leaving some of the cold behind too. This part of the country has been bragging of their spring/summer-like weather for awhile.

We are heading up the Trans-Canada Highway towards Calgary where there seems be a fair number of guilds and quilt shops to visit.  Several of these guilds have been supplying lots of inches to help with this trek. Calgary Silver Thimbles and

Piecemakers Guild of Calgary have had great Show & Tells - if the number of inches is anything to go by. Battle River Quilters’ Guild and Cochrane Quilters’ have also been gathering inches for us to get on the way.

While in Calgary, we stopped at Along Came Quilting . We saw a neat idea for that little someone -  Burrito Baby Wrap. This cute little pattern was available there.
We made another stop - this time to Quilting from the Heart in Camrose for their shop hop on National Quilting Day and to check out all the kits and fabric too (Judy Niemeyer quilts and patterns seem to be popular here). Then onto Addie’s Creative Fabrics of Cochrane, AB. They're preparing for their booth in Lethbridge merchant mall (QC2015).

I’d like to thank Chatham Kent Quilters for their large contribution of inches this month - They had a blitz on making Cuddle Quilts this month - way to go!!
As well, notable inches came from the Abbotsford Quilters (BC), Nanaimo Quilters (BC) and Huron Perth Quilters’ Guild (ON). Thanks to everyone who have sent in their guild’s inches each month.

We have enough inches to get us into British Columbia, but not as far as Salmon Arm for this section of the trip. So we’ll stop off in Banff, AB or maybe Lake Louise to see some of the sights there before we move on... Hopefully we’ll make it to Penticton for our next stop and then back to Lethbridge in time for QC2015.
Don’t forget to keep those inches coming in to the Director at Large (
