Update on Quilts for Fort McMurray

Thank you to everyone for your support in this project! We received over 2,000 blocks from all over the world. With our members and other quilters who came out to help this summer, we have pieced nearly every single block into a quilt - so we don't have any more tops to make! However, we still need help! 

The main two things we need right now are:

2) Volunteers to quilt - long arm, domestic or however you prefer.
1) Batting and backing donations. We would be grateful for donations of batting, and for volunteers to help make backings from donated fabric to provide for people to use for quilting. 

We are expecting some quilted quilts to be returned at our September guild meeting, at which time we would be grateful for volunteers to bind quilts

We hope to have all finished quilts done and returned at our October guild meeting to be shipped off to Alberta.

CBC Ottawa visited our August Sew-In, and you can check out the article here. You can also see more photos from our sew days on Flickr here!

If you are able to volunteer to quilt, have batting to donate, or have any other questions, please contact Stacey at
