I am on countdown to changing homes and so the focus is on finishing!
Saturday, October 7, 2017
And so... not much time with my sewing machine for a week while I was visiting her and my sister, who all the work is falling upon to care of both parents, both in the hospital!
I have managed to quilt and bind three quilts that were tops that came from the Canadian Quilters Association, via the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild. I had a stack of 9 given to me to quilt and donate to Quilts of Valour. These were made for the Great Canadian quilt bee held during Quilt Canada's conference and for donation to Ronald McDonald houses across Canada. The quilt bee was held to commemorate Canada's 150th birthday and each quilt was made from Cheryl Arkison slab block pattern and needed one piece of Canadiana fabric in them.
I have two of my triangle quilts finished and the third one is waiting for binding. This was originally a kit called Zoe's quilt (bought at a quilt show in 2014) and I decided to make two preemie quilts and one slightly larger instead of one big quilt.
And blocks in progress for a We Care quilt demonstration at guild on Tuesday. Come and see what it is about!
These fabrics are a challenge for the FVMQG and I have no clue what to use them for but the project is due Thursday. It might not happen!
