What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday! Last week I travelled to Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, about 3 hours from home, to spend the day making charity quilts for The Lodge That Gives, a place where cancer patients and their families can stay while undergoing treatments in Halifax. I am using some pictures President Adrienne took that day, but please visit the Maritime Modern Quilt Guild blog to see more pictures and learn more about the day. I am using Blogger on my iPad to write this post and can't figure out how to insert a link...sorry...perhaps you can google it?
These are the quilts that were either finished by the end of the day or waiting for quilting.
Adrienne tells us 8 quilts are the result of the sew day. Members donated batches of 8.5" unfinished HST blocks, using a shade of grey on one side, and one of about 4 or 5 colours for the other side.
I arrived with my portable Sew Ezi table and my trusty little travelling Janome.
My friend, Linda, top of the picture, who blogs at Scrapmaster, is always an inspiration to me. She had her blocks ready in no time, put the pedal to the metal, and quilted away! Adrienne, who took the picture, was on the other side of me. She quilted her quilt using wavy lines and it was exquisite!
It was a super day and I so enjoyed meeting everyone that day!
It's a great day for quilting!
