Quilt For Sale

Several of our FQG members are involved with the local chapter of Grandmothers Helping Grandmothers. This group raises funds, builds awareness and fosters solidarity with destitute African grandmothers struggling to care for millions of grandchildren orphaned by HIV/AIDS. The Fredericton group has already contributed considerable funds through a variety of initiatives including the sale of cookbooks and notepaper, bridge luncheons, garage sales, dinners, our annual Christmas wreath sales, and more. Profits are directed equally to: Stephen Lewis Foundation [SLF] and Help Lesotho, two Canadian organizations working at the grassroots level in sub‐Saharan Africa.
A current fundraiser is the sale of this double sized quilt. Measuring 71" by 87", it features hand appliqu├ęd blocks and was professionally quilted by Gwenda Mattinson of Gwenda Quilts.   The asking price is $600.00. If you know of anyone who is looking for a beautiful quilt, please pass this information on. If you would like more info, or to speak with someone in the group about purchasing this quilt, leave a comment here and I will put you in touch with the proper person.  It would make a very special gift for a special person in your life...
