Staying Connected #13

Welcome to the latest in this series of posts. Think “Lucky 13!”

From Chris … This is my lap quilt made from the 52 blocks in 52 weeks. 35 blocks on the front and 17 on the back. About to quilt it. It measures 36 x 50 and will be a Community Quilt.

From the Community Quilts Committee – Connie, Elaine A, and Linda F … submitted by Linda

Les O. and Glenna W. have been very busy lately, finishing off ten quilts for donation. These two are just a sample of their wonderful work.

You might recognize the “disappearing four patch” pattern used for the charming child’s quilt as the same one Suzanne P. used for the Quilt of Valour.

The Seminole quilt features some colourful African motif fabric which beautifully ties together with the intricately pieced strips.

Huge thanks to Les and Glenna.

From Sharon R … Bought a panel and cut it in half so I have now completed two owl quilts that I started last year, both have same fronts but different backings. Another project finished. Will find a good home for them (have some twins in mind).

From Kathryn and Anne R … with the permission of Krista Hennebury

Krista Hennebury made this quilt for the sister of Lisa McCully, one of the Nova Scotia shooting victims. Lisa and her children had recorded this song for family & friends just a few days before she was murdered. Carol Chernov did a beautiful job with the quilting, which she kindly donated.

From Elaine D … some interesting sewing machines

Many thanks to Chris, Linda, Sharon, Kathryn, Anne R and Elaine

This year the Summer Solstice occurs on June 20. It is the longest day of the year and marks the start of summer in the Northern Hemisphere.

This year there will be no visitors to watch the sun rise over mystical Stonehenge.

Instead, the event will be livestreamed on the English Heritage YouTube channel.
