QACDG enjoyed our first “pandemic” guild meeting on Sept. 3, 2020, featuring a Zoom trunk show with quilter Diane Harris. She presented Windy Wonders: A Quilt Block Grows Up, showcasing many creative possibilities using one simple block design.

In addition to sharing her time and expertise, Diane has gifted us with a limited-time recording of her talk, inspiration for a guild challenge and several handouts. Check these out below.

1) RECORDING OF HER TALK (1 hour long)
Diane has been kind enough to record her talk and make it available to guild members until the end of the day, Sun., Sept. 17, 2020. Just click on this link. The recording starts partway through Té’s announcements. Please Do NOT share this link with anyone outside the guild, because her contract limits this presentation to our members only.

Make your own block (or quilt!) for show and tell at our October guild meeting (through Zoom). Let’s see what we all can do! Send pictures to

Here are several things I would like your members to have. They go along with the trunk show and should make perfect sense to anyone who watched the live talk or will watch the recording.

I wish you all well and I hope our paths will cross again! ” –Diane Harris
