Hello all FNQG members and quilters.
Summer is in full swing and the last meeting of the year was really great! Thank you to everyone who brought the delicious food for the potluck and to all those who participated in the colour theory challenge. Beautiful quilts all around. We’ll share photos as they become available. For those who were unable to be at the June meeting you can bring your challenge quilt to show and tell in September. We’d still love to see it.
A post will be published in August to give some details about September’s first meeting so sit back, relax, have your vacation, and keep on quilting!
Comfort and Charity Quilts
I apologize to those who attended the lovely wind-up meeting and luncheon this morning that this report was not quite finished, but I Had to top up the Church cupboard in the office before I could document how many quilts had been distributed and to where.
Report for the 2017-18 Guild year is as follows –
Neonatal (Kelly) 4
Sheldon Kennedy (Quilts from the Heart) 1
ALS/MS (Ellie) 5 (3 today and 2 more finished and ready to pass to Ellie in September)
Church Cupboard 3 for Men; 5 for Ladies; 3 for Children
Total quilts distributed (2017/2018 guild year) 21
Many thanks to all the Members who helped in any way on these quilts by donating fabric and flannel backing, making tops, quilting, binding, making labels and hand stitching. It was definitely a team effort!
Have a GREAT summer! See you in September!
With hugs, Chris
