April 2018 Special Trunk Show by Elva Lloyd

Elva was a member of the guild for many years and also belongs to the Happy Quilters on Manitoulin Island.  She and her sisters all hand quilt and Elva has quilted many, many quilts for other people.  She is very creative as you will see in this series of photos taken at her trunk show.  If you weren't in the audience, you have missed hearing the names and descriptions of these quilts, along with the statistics - how many half-square triangles or flying geese and how many hours to quilt.
We were thrilled that Elva visited our guild to present her trunk show.
