Slave Lake Quilt Initiative Update

We'll we did it!  Our first shipment of quilts are on their way to Edmonton, and then off to Slave Lake.  Over 50 quilts  and 21 pillowcases were made and more are in the works.   We've set a deadline for the 18th of June with all remaining quilts to be sent at the end of the month.  What a great feeling it is to be able to help someone in such a tangible way.  Quilters truly are the most generous people I know!


This past Saturday, a group of quilters gathered to add some finishing touches to quilts made for residents of Slave Lake, Alberta. 

Over 50 quilts were made, many waiting for labels to be sewn on.

The labels were made by one very talented individual in the group.

The finishing touches are added to a quilt as you go log cabin.  A very striking quilt...let's add this one to my to-do list!

Another fabulous work in progress.

A charming baby blanket, ready to go.

What a vibrant quilt...and a matching pillowcase was made as well.  Twenty-one pillowcases were made and are ready to go.

Here's my contribution for this go round, a rag quilt made using flannel scraps.

A favourite fabric.


  1. Wow, what a productive group you are. I see the tragedy only happened on May 15. You ladies must have worked very hard to get so many items completed. I am sure they will be appreciated.


I love hearing from you - thanks for leaving a comment.
