I decided to go through some quilts I have in stock. Next week our guild is collecting quilts to send to Slave Lake, Alberta. One of our members, Lynne by name, has been trying to find a carrier to get them out there. I don't know how she did it, but the number one airline in Canada ~~ well it is in my humble opinion ~~ were thrilled to be asked to participate. Lynne is finalizing all the arrangements. When Lynne wrote to me the other night, I was jumping up and down for joy.
I imagine I'm like most other quilters. I have quilts rolled and there they sit. Yesterday I started to think about some of those quilts and how they can be used by the folks out west that have nothing. So my donation increased. Here they are.....................I know they will be appreciated.
|I found this pattern in a Thimbleberries book many years ago. It is one of the few scrap quilts I own. It was fun and it is also hand quilted. I did that in those days.|
I'm not bragging about our guild. There is nothing worse than to go on a blog and read how wonderful "my guild" is. I will say that our women do have generous hearts. A few years ago one of our members lost her little granddaughter to cancer and asked all of us to make hats to send to Mac Kids in Hamilton. The response was overwhelming as it was for the quilts of Haiti, quilts for Japan earthquake relief and now this. All we do is ask and they come forth. They are a wonderful group of ladies and I'm very proud to be associated with them.
