Thistle Quilters' Westering Women

The Thistle Quilt Guild in Nova Scotia, Canada, just had their quilt show. This display is all Westering Women samplers.

Sheila's model

Sheila, the program director, organized the guild's block-of-the-month last year.

The thirty or so members followed the monthly blog here and Sheila added a few more blocks to make the quilt larger.

They all used the traditional set. It's a small guild but obviously they are enthusiastic stitchers.

Sheila gave them 20 blocks instead of 12.
I Photoshopped her model to give you
a wrinkly picture of all 20.

I am always pleased to have guilds use my BOM's for their monthly programs. The Westering Women pattern began as a BOM for my own guild several years ago.  It's not too late to start Yankee Diary with your guild.

Beautiful quilts on display! I loved your BOM even though my quilt isn't quilted yet, I envolved my daughter and sister in law,and they are still worked on it.
Thank you Barbara!
