A Mellow Yellow Day

Every year in January my quilt group"Mellow Yellows" take a trip to Stratford Ontario Canada To deliver a quilt. Our quilt is a donation to "The Quilt", an auction with all the proceeds going for breast cancer research . We plan a time when we can all be to-gether and work on the quilt . It usually takes 3 or 4 get to-gethers to finish the project..It's something we take on with love and hope. The day to-gether is special and we deliver the quilt and then spend the rest of the day having lunch and shopping.I thought you might like to see this years donation. We chose a masculine palette the last couple of years, which has proved successful. Last years quilt brought in $1500.00.. we were soooo Happy.
We are left to right. Heather Stewart(quilt teacher) Karen Cole(Long Arm Quilting Business) Maggie Robinson....(.ME!! Fibre/doll artist and Beader who just had cataract surgery last week)and Carol McLean(International quilt teacher.
We have been doing this project for I think 7 years and enjoyed every minute.BTW two seated are young enough to be my daughters..... Now shouldn't I be the one sitting!! hee hee
