Charity Quilts
Yikes! I can't stop quilting!

You're addicted. Admit it and solve your problem by donating your quilt projects. There are several charities that have quilt donation programs. Are your scraps controlling your life? Many of these organizations need fabric, thread and other quilting supplies to create their quilts.

Contact local organizations, domestic abuse shelters, children's aid offices, hospice facilities, and animal shelters. Ask staff at local quilt shops if they know of comfort quilt groups. Quit feeling guilty - donate and quilt on! Donation Contacts

Flowers in the Garden - June 2017


Flowers in the Garden
June 2017

The charity chosen by our Guild for 2016-2017 was Little Warriors. The quilt was a joint effort. Sally pieced it and I quilted and bound it.

This kit has been kicking around my sewing room for a couple of years until Sally rescued it in an effort to reduce my stash.

The fabric is from Camelot Collection "Monster Mash" designed Heather Rosas. For the back, I used fabric from the Colorfully Creative Collection by Riley Black Designs. The pattern is Flowers in the Garden by Sweet Jane. It has instructions for two sizes - a baby quilt and a lap quilt but because of the nature of the pattern the quilt can be made any size. It is a great pattern because it goes together fas and there are very few seams to nest. It is great for large print fabrics and looks very scrappy.

Meals on Wheels

Calgary in 1964 was a growing and relatively affluent city. Recognizing that many elderly people were living alone with no support system the United Church Women started a pilot project on November 15th, 1965 for meal service with 8 clients. Meals were prepared in the kitchen of the Calgary North Hill Community YMCA. In 1967 the organization became a United Way Fund agency. Now, 50 years later, more than 700 volunteers deliver meals five days a week to needy clients. Calgary Meals on Wheels
