From Canada With Love
I belong to a group of women(4 of us..Carol,Heather,Karen and Maggie) called the Mellow Yellows.
We get to-gether and sew quilts for charity. We have been donating quilts for"The Quilt" for more than 10 years bringing in hundreds of dollars for the cause.We are proud of our achievements which leaves us with a warm fuzzy feeling.
This year we decided to make comfort quilts for wounded soldiers.These are some pictures of our latest sewing day and the finished lap quilt we made. We used fabric with the maple leaf on it since it is on our flag
It is on it's way to a wounded soldier with love and hope it gives some comfort with our appreciation for the job they do.
BTW ...the room we use belongs to the Oxford Quilters Guild of which we all are members (Be sure and take a peek). It is a wonderful facility . We hold our guild meetings here and it can be used any time unless it is already in use.
