A sea of colour filled Maxville United Church during the Highland Quilters’ Guild two-day quilt show November 1 and 2. Close to 100 quilts, most of them made by guild members, filled the nave of the church. Quilt show organizer Jeannette Scott says the show, showcasing the art of quilting, is the first for the guild. The Highland Quilters’ Guild was founded in 2007 by Monique Wilson. Membership has grown to 82 members and the guild, after outgrowing two meeting places, now meets at the Monkland Community Centre. Wilson, who operates the Village Quilt Shoppe in Maxville, says guild members range from novice to expert and new members are welcome.
