The Orchard Valley Quilters Guild holds a quilt show every two years. Our most recent show, Binding Canada Together: One Quilt at a Time, a celebration of Canada's 150th birthday, was held September 23 and 24, 2017.
A highlight of the show was the unveiling our special Canada 150 Quilt Project: Women Shaping Our Nation which has been many months in the making. This quilt found a pernanent home at the office of Interior Health in Kelowna.
This beautiful quilt, designed and created by members of our guild was featured at our show. The quilt highlights women who have made significant contributions to our nation in various fields. A picture and bio of each woman appears on the quilt -- and in the accompanying booklet below. Read all about it!
