To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday the Canadian Quilters’ Association is hosting Canada’s Big Quilt Bee. Our goal is to make and donate 1,000 quilts for kids at Ronald MacDonald Houses across Canada. But we can’t do it without you!
There are 14 Ronald MacDonald Houses across Canada, all associated with local children’s hospitals, with a total of 469 family rooms. These rooms are full all year and there are actually waiting lists for residency while children are treated in hospital.
We are asking quilters across Canada to make blocks, tops and quilts. All the specifications are found here.
Canada’s Big Quilt Bee will be held June 14-17, 2017 at Quilt Canada 2017 in Toronto, ON. There will be sewing machines, long arms, mid arms and an army of volunteers ready to work on quilt tops and stacks of slabs made by hundreds of Canadian quilters.
