Counting Inches to Quilt Canada 2016 #2

Thanks to all the guilds who have submitted inches since our last report. We’ve had some interesting quilts that have been measured - from Meals on Wheels placemats, to comfort quilts, to quilts as gifts, as well as guild Show and Tell quilts.
Black Gold Quilt Patch Guild, Leduc AB
With this good response, we have travelled out of Alberta along the Trans Canada Highway and into Saskatchewan, not quite enough to get us to Regina (where I had hoped to get to on this leg of the trip). 

A project that was shown at
Temiskaming Shores Quilters’ Guild meeting.
Common Threads QG (Orleans, ON) This quilt was done by Sherida Giddings.
Pattern is called Fire Island Hosta Queen by Judy Niemeyer.
Custom quilted by Johanne Moore. It was 400 inches. 

This quilt was given to  the
West Haldimand Hospital for their annual auction.
It raised $1,700.

Keep sending in those inches to Marilyn at We have 5 months of inch collecting to get us to Toronto, ON in time for Quilt Canada 2016  June 15-18, 2016.

Hope everyone gets lots of quilting done over the holidays for your next guild show and tell!
