Quilts for Slave Lake

As promised, here are pictures of the quilts I'll be taking up to Edmonton for delivery to Slave Lake.  I didn't piece any of these quilts, and only quilted 7 of them.  The others were donated completely finished.  I was happy to do this - and, if I say so myself, they are fabulous!!!  I love every single one of them!  And I know, a lot of heart and soul went into making each one.  Thanks so much to the quilters who donated them. 

I was getting a bit carried away with my "photo shoot" , but . . . . Enjoy the pics . . .
A brilliant quilt pieced by Susan's friend, and quilted by LHC using the panto Double Plume by Karyn Emmerson.

So, that's about it from the Little House for now . . . tomorrow I am heading up to Edmonton to take a couple of classes at Sparrow Studioz and I think I'll also take in the Edmonton District Quilt Guild quilt show while I'm there . . . couldn't hurt!  I'm also going to try and watch the Canucks get back on the right side of the scoreboard with my little sista - Sharon.  It should be a good weekend, all in all!    Until next time -   Happy Quilting or what ever it is that keeps you in balance!
