Instructor: Paul Leger
Instructor Bio: I live in Ottawa, Canada where I worked for the federal government for 16 years after spending 21 years in the Canadian Armed Forces, I retired on September 1, 2016. My journey in quilting in May 1990. My mother, Doris Bourque-L?ger, a quilter and dressmaker, encouraged me to buy a sewing machine ?for sewing emergencies?. One day, I got the idea to cut up the good parts of some old air force uniform shirts. "Why?" you ask - at the time I had no idea. After a few days, I recalled that in the "old days" people would use clothing to make bed quilts, so I set off to cut up more old shirts in an isosceles trapezoid shape, using SURGICAL SCISSORS! I sewed the pieces together based on an idea in my mind. ?The corners weren't square,? nor were the blocks. I ran out of fabric pieces, so I made my first trip to a quilting shop, the ?Cloth Castle in Langford, British Columbia,? There I got advice and bought more fabric. First top completed and liking the process so much, I had a second quilt top completed before I had sent the first one to my mother for quilting. ?It's on my bed today?. I took my first quilting course in September 1994 from Joan Winter in Barrie, Ontario, near the armed forces base where I was stationed. After moving to Ottawa in 1996, I joined my first guild. I took more courses and began to buy quilting books and lots of fabrics. Quilting has become my passion. I have made over 200 more quilts since then, and have never looked back. I now share my knowledge of quilting by teaching and doing presentations.
