May gallery show features local quilters Creative Chaos

The current show showcases the work of 21 members of the Quesnel Quilters Guild

Cyndi Myron is one of 21 members of the Quesnel Quilters Guild to display their handiwork in the May gallery show.

Quesnel Art Gallery presents Creative Chaos, which showcases the work of 21 members of the Quesnel Quilters Guild. Members of the guild were challenged to create half-square triangle quilts.

“We called it the HST challenge,” guild member Cyndi Myron said.

“This enables us to utilize scraps from other projects. Many of the quilts created have a geometric design but with placement of colour and design, each is unique. Dark and light further define the quilters’ interpretive design.”

Myron has been a member of the QQG for almost 20 years and has her work in all the guild’s shows.

“The shows allow us to display our art and increase awareness for the community of our work,” she said.

The guild currently has 63 members of all levels of expertise.

“We encourage first time quilters – that’s how you learn and every member of the guild is eager to share their knowledge,” Myron said.

“The foundation of the guild is a love of quilting and a desire for fellowship. We also share a love of shopping for fabric.”

Myron admitted she usually has two or three projects on the go at any given time and says this is typical of most guild members.

“Quilting is a matter of prioritizing time, regardless of how busy or stressful your life is, to spend at least 15 minutes of your day being creative, for me it’s quilting,” she said.

Creative Chaos is sponsored by R&R Sewing Centre, Quilted Accents and Amelia’s Cotton for Quilts.
