CQA “Walk to Brock” Challenge

This year’s challenge runs from Sept 1st to March 31, 2014.  The distance is 413,937,012 inches from Mile 0 in Victoria, BC to Brock University in St. Catherines, ON, the home of Quilt Canada 2014, via Inuvik, NWT.

Participating guilds across Canada are to report the total inches of the perameters of quilts shown at Show and Tell.

Report:  Our Guild had 4,966 inches measured from quilts at our Oct. meeting.  It would be very helpful if you could have the measurement ready when you sign up before the meetings at Show & Tell area.

At the November meeting 2,598 inches were measured and our Feb. 2014 meeting measurements of quilts totalled 2350 inches.

At our March show and tell quilts measured 2,637 inches.   CQA has thanked our Guild for the contribution of 4,189 inches reported from our April Show and Tell.   This is incredible ladies.  The May measurement will be awesome as many large quilts were brought in for Show and Tell.  Can’t wait to hear what it is.

The Walk to Brock is making good progress through the Prairies where the road is flat and straight.

Penticton Quilters Guild reported over 43,000 inches, mostly from one quilter who stitched almost half a mile.

The deadline has been extended to June 11, 2014 – the opening day of Quilt Canada.

At the May Show & Tell 5,885 inches were measured for a total of 24,000 inches contributed since the challenge started last September.  Thanks to everyone who participated in this challenge. Your completed quilts are your reward.
