Quilts of Valour Workshop

My friend, Christine, organized a Quilts of Valour workshop for the London Friendship Quilters Guild today. I was her "assistant" at the workshop. 12 ladies arrived to help make the quilt tops. We divided them into 3 groups with each group being given a kit that Christine and I had prepared earlier in the week.

Christine did a brief lesson on how to put the blocks together and then everyone "put the pedal to the metal" and sewed!

Actually, some people sewed...

Some people pressed...

And others cut...

In the end, we had 3 completed tops:

#1 had black borders and triangles:

#2 had green borders and triangles:
#3 had brown borders and triangles:

 You can see that the borders still need to be added to the brown quilt! These quilts, when done, will be given to wounded Canadian soldiers.

Did you see all of the bonus HST's in the "Pressing" picture?  We have another charity project in mind for those!

Today was a very productive day!

I am off to sit on the couch and hand sew some binding...

Pictures to be posted soon.
