Staying Connected #12

Keeping in touch from our own homes …

From Sonja S … I made this from my stash for a “pandemic baby” whose family live down the hall. They are recent immigrants and have no family here.

From Marianne … The runner and the small lap quilt were done by residents of CedarView Lodge and myself. I used to volunteer there, but stopped because hardly any residents participated anymore. Now I just have to hand them over, when it is possible …

… This little wall hanging was started in a workshop by our own Isabel McDonald. That was probably 12 or more years ago. Well, it is hanging now.

From Yoskyl … A wall hanging by Helen Fujiki, the CQA Award Winner.

Some of you may remember Helen taught us a two day workshop, and gave the guild a wall hanging to raffle … I was lucky enough to win. It hangs in my bedroom and I took the photo in the evening to highlight her wonderful free motion quilting.

It serves as my inspiration of a level of achievement, for which I am leaving it a little late ever to reach!

From Elaine A … This quilt was made for Connie’s initiative to make a quilt for the care workers at Lynn Valley Care Home.

Ten to fifteen years ago I made the quilt top for the Lions Gate Quilters Raffle. In my stash I found a bag of scraps and pieces left over from that quilt. Some of the leftover blocks were also in the bag and these scraps and pieces were the inspiration for this lap quilt.

I did not have enough fabric to use for a border and was I lucky enough to find in my stash several pieces of fabric that complemented the middle section to use for the border and the backing.

From Sharon R … I started this quilt a couple of years ago, it was going to be for Margaret (she had a Love Bird named Cheeky) but when I knew she was never going to be around long enough I put it away. I finally got it quilted (by Dawn) and put the bindings on and just finished it. Some special person will get it, just don’t know who that will be yet.

From Wendy W …

Many thanks to this week’s contributors:
Sonja, Marianne, Yoskyl, Elaine, Sharon and Wendy.

It was a beautiful day in the neighbourhood … some scenery along the streets of Lynn Valley. Feel free to share photos of your own neighbourhood for these posts. JS
