Community Projects Donation Quilts.

At our February meeting last night, attendees got to see the finished quilt to be donated to Portage Atlantic, the New Brunswick Youth Drug Addiction Treatment Centre. It is a scrappy Disappearing Four Patch, measuring 65" x 88".
The pattern is called Disappearing Four Patch, as you start with a four patch, make a few cuts through the block, rearrange the pieces and re-sew it together. Quick and easy. Many thanks to Kathleen D for piecing the top and some extra blocks, to Jean K for adding one more row to bring it up to single bed

size and for preparing the binding, to Sue R for donating the nice cozy flannel backing, to Gwenda M for doing the quilting and to the Nashwaaksis Lions Club for covering  the cost of the quilting, batting and thread. It was my pleasure to add the final stitches by doing the binding on this quilt. Such a great community project! I know it will be gratefully received.
UPDATE, Feb.26: the goal of 50 quilts for Portage Atlantic has been surpassed!!

Also shown last night was another donation quilt which will be given to Family Enrichment and Counselling to be raffled. I sure hope Tracey brings in some tickets for us to purchase!

The Bali Pop was donated by Sue R, the top was pieced by Lois M and the quilting was done by Jean K. The block design is Half  Log Cabin.

What a beauty! Well done, ladies!
