Lynne’s Trunk Show…

Yesterday, at Heritage Quilt Guild, we were lucky enough to have a Trunk Show from a well known Victoria quilting teacher! Lynne wowed us with her quilts…and it was fun to see and hear how her quilts progressed from simple quilts to the more elaborate quilts that she works on today! 

Twenty years ago, Lynne and her husband, were living on a remote island… to keep her sanity and provide her with a much needed hobby, each week Lynne would take the ferry off the island and venture into Victoria to attend a quilting class!  This is the sampler quilt that she made that year…providing her with the necessary skills to move on…

And move on she did!  Now after several classes…and 20 years later, they are living in Victoria and she is teaching classes! 

I’m not going to comment on each quilt  as there are just too many!…I am going to let you watch and enjoy…(better pour yourself a coffee… Lynne is one prolific quilter!)
