Big Quilt Bee
Start date: 1 October, 2016
End date: 30 June, 2017
We are inviting quilters from across Canada to make quilts, or quilt tops and blocks, to celebrate Canada 150. The quilts will be donated to Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada. For more info, see www.canadianquilter.com .
Nature of the Project Reach
We have a social media campaign underway to inform quilters across the country. Donations are starting to arrive and many local members and guilds are ready to assist.
At our annual Conference, Quilt Canada 2017, we are hosting a traditional quilting bee to finish up to 1000 quilts as donations. We will have dedicated space for quilting and have many donations from our sponsors. The Big Quilt Bee is open to members and non members.
