ABQ has been open at our new location at 15 Centre St. West in Strathroy since late April, but on Thursday, June 2, 2022, we celebrated the move to this much larger space with a grand re-opening.
Guess the Block contest
We had a contest to “guess the block” seen on the front of our building.
Carol MacDonald was the winner of the contest. The answer is the aptly named Prosperity Block. She found it in her copy of the Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns, which is a reference for all known quilt blocks in the world.
Here she is with her prize, a fat quarter pack.
