Longwoods Road Quilts

Breaking News

Members of the Longwoods Road Quilt Team met July 21 at the Sew Creative quilting shop owned by Joan Hilhorst, Mt Brydges.

The enthusiastic group received a history lesson from Mr Glen Stott about the historical events that occurred on the Longwoods Road during the War of 1812. Two quilts are to be created in honour of the local women of this region during this important time in Canadian History.
The two quilts are a precursor to the 60 barn quilt blocks that are planned from Thamesville to Delaware along the Longwoods Road.

If you are interested in getting involved in these great projects please contact me. Quilters are needed.

Wardsville Barn Quilt Tourists

Mildred Kulich stopped at the home of Denise Corneil’s Sunday July 10, 2011 in search of a map and details of the Wardsville Barn Quilt Trail. Millie stated “my cousins Jean Dimmel and Pat Powell,( both of Oregon, USA) are here on a vacation and where insistent that I take them on the Wardsville’s Barn Quilt Tour. The ladies where having a great time and had found all the blocks but needed a map to take home with them to Oregon. Wardsville’s Barn Quilt Trail has been a great success having visitors from England and Holland earlier this year. The first Middlesex Doors Open program, September 17 and 18, will highlight Wardsville Barn Quilts. Watch for upcoming details.
