1st of the Fort McMurray Quilts

The Leduc Black Gold Quilt Patch has been working on Quits to send to people from Fort McMurray. Many homes were lost in the wild fires and people are still not back to town to see if their homes. Many know if they lost everything. This is one that I started a little over a week ago. I just got the machine quilting done today. It is ready for the binding, I am hoping my mom will do that for me. The binding will be the dark plaid fabric. 

The Black Gold Quilt Patch guild did a big weekend work bee. I got the cute owl fabric and the background colour from the donation table. I then donated many of the other cute prints from my Hawaii fabrics and the batting. The backing fabric was donated from the Purple Katz Quilt Shop. They gave the guild a lot of large backings. There were many shops who gave us fabric to use but I do not know who all did. The Executive Royal Inn in Nisku let the guild use one of the rooms for 4 days so we could work together and get many quilts done. We were hoping to get 100 done and so far we passed that number. I know my mom and I are working on 3 together and this is the closest one to being done. 

Here is the lay out I did just before I started to put the rows together. 

I have added this post to Crazy Mom Quilts and Finish up Friday

Gemma and I got our Agility Dog of Canada with the Agility Assignation of Canada since I last posted. Our first big ribbon. Our judge was Meaghan O'Neil and it was her first time to give out a title as a new judge. 


  1. A beautiful quilt that will brighten someone's life. What a kind and thoughtful thing to do. Wish I had more time now to create one or two as well. Congratulations on Gemma's ribbon.

  2. Lovely finish on this donation quilt--so terrific of you...congrats on the ribbon for your doggie...hugs Julierose
