Victoria Quilters' Guild - Donation Quilt Tops

A while back I talked about the Yours, Mine & Ours Group at Calico Cupboard here in Victoria. Several members of the group, Peggy Farries and myself went to our local guild meeting last evening and showed the 6 quilt tops we made from the donated blocks during our monthly sessions. Here is the picture taken by the Victoria Quilters' Guild webmaster, Mary Anne Jarvin. Thanks for taking the photo Mary Anne!

The quilts are being donated to the local chapter of Victoria's Quitls Canada, an organization that provides comfort quilts for cancer patients. I know this caring and generous group will finish these tops and they'll be on their way to good homes soon.

A new series of monthly classes will begin in October. This time we're calling the project 'Seasonal Sampler' and Peggy and I will have some new and interesting blocks and techniques to share. Our students have said they really want to continue making additional blocks for donation and we think that's an excellent idea. I know you'll want to join in the fun, so check out the Calico Cupboard Fall Class brochure and give the shop a call to sign up.

I love the photo of the group projects. They look beautiful. I'm sure the patients will appreciate them. Thanks for teaching me some new techniques. Thirell T

I enjoyed our sessions so much too. Hopefully we'll have fun with the next project that Peggy and I have planned!
