    President's Message By Sylvia Corbin

    Canyon Echoes JUNE 2019

    June is always a busy month for me, filled with completing quilts for graduations and birthday celebrations. I have a very large family and with that comes four high school graduations, one college graduation, and several landmark birthday celebra- tions. I’m grateful to be a quilter, as are my family members that receive my heartfelt gifts of quilts. It brings me joy to know that they appreciate, and “use” the quilts that I gift them. I especially like gifting my quilts for the soon to be college stu-

    dent that will be living in the dorms, and that my quilts will be the envy of their friends.

    This last month has been a busy time for Canyon Board and committee mem- bers. The 2 day workshop with Phyllis Cullen was a great success, as was her lecture on her prolific life of amazing quilts. Committee members have been ac- tively preparing for our summer Fund Raiser “Country Fair," as well as boosting our support for the Warrior Foundation, and kick starting our Quilt Challenge of “Game Night.” Many hours of volunteer work goes on behind the scenes to continue to make Canyon Quilters Guild as creative and educational for all those that attend. I hope you will consider taking an active role in contributing to our great team of Board members and Volunteers. I truly have been enjoying being part of this fun and creative Team. Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your President for the 2018-2019 year

    Sew Happy

    JUNE Peggy Martin www.peggymartinquilts.com June 17 topic: “Beyond Tradition” June 22 Workshop: “Curved Illusions”

    OCTOBER Suzi Parron www.barnquiltinfo.com October 21 topic: “Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail” October 26 Workshop: “Barn Quilt Painting”

    Curved Illusions: Sinuous curves are produced with straight-line piecing in these easy off-center log cabin blocks. The settings and design possibilities are end- less! Take this class and experience one of the best workshop teachers there is while learning this wonder- ful technique.

    Join the barn quilt movement by creating your own painted quilt block. You will begin with a preprimed board and go through each step drafting, taping, and painting, with careful attention to detail. The work- shop lasts about 4 hours.

    You will leave with a finished quilt block or with one last color (which will be provided) to add at home. Ready for show and tell at your next meeting!

    The finished product will be two by two feet and is the perfect size for mounting on smaller buildings or in your yard!

    Canyon Quilt Challenge

    2019 "GAME NIGHT"

    Game night was always a fun way to end the work week. Whether we were at the

    kitchen table with Risk, Monopoly or Clue it was an opportunity for one of the kids

    to take over the world or accuse one of us of making bad choices in the library with

    the candlestick, who knew Mrs. Peacock was capable of such things? This challenge

    is our chance to recreate a family tradition, share unspeakable fun (Taboo), discov-

    ery, settlement & trade (The Settlers of Catan), the Magical world of words (Disney

    Family Cranium) or mix In the chaos, stir in the fun! (Bananagrams).

    Let’s have some fun, join in the games and let’s see who wins…

    Pick up a form at the next meeting, fill it out, pay your $5 and PLAY!
