Happy Canada Day

Finished all 3 quilts!

My mom and I have been working on 3 quilts to give to Fort Mac people who have lot their homes to the wild fires in early May. I can not imagine what they have been through. First running from the flames not know what will happen to their homes or jobs.  I can only hope these quilts can give them a big HUG. 

This quilt was mostly blocks I received from 2 internet swaps that used the Kaffe Fassett collection of fabric. I also made a block for myself with the same pattern I used and sent out to others. I thought this was a very good use for the blocks. So back in May I had a stack of homeless blocks. Now a quilt. 

I started this quilt the weekend the Leduc quilt guild had a big sewing bee for Fort Mac. I used lots of fabric off the donation table. Then I added some of my Hawaii fabric too.  It has turned out very cute. 

I did the machine quilting for all three and my mom did the binding and labels for all three. We make a good team. 

This quilt was mostly pieced by my Mom. I had a stack of 16 patches and 4 patches left from a old project. There was enough blocks still to make another quilt. It is the 3rd one like this. It is beautiful and soft. 


  1. All three of these are lovely quilts... and you and your mom have good hearts to donate them. Is there a pattern for the one that uses the Hawaii fabric? I think this would be a good layout for some of my novelty stash... thanks!

  2. All wonderful quilts Kathy and the people who receive these will, I am sure, be very grateful. I especially love the top one.
