Summer in a Square table topper was designed and made by Mary Waugh of the Limestone Quilters’ Guild for the Quilters’ Boutique at Quilts Kingston 2012. This quilt show is held every four years and jointly organized by the Limestone Quilters’ Guild and the Kingston Heirloom Quilters.
Quilts Kingston 2012 showcased the work of guild members including several group handmade quilts including The Millennium quilt, The Doors of Kingston, and Fashion through the Decade. Kathy Wylie was the featured quilter and Pamela Allen and Nancy Garrard were guests of Simkins Sewing. A Rug Hooking and Embroidery display as well as the ‘1812 Challenge’ provided a great variety of art.
The centre of the table topper is a Husqvarna Diamond embroidery design using twenty-five different coloured threads and 10 hours of stitching. Many thanks to Quilt & Stitch, Kingston for kindly donating the use of the Husqvarna Diamond.
