Here is Welcome to Canada, a twin-sized quilt heading off to a new Canadian in the near future!
|I've had this "design" in my head for ages now. I've often looked at my pile of scraps and wanted to make something just like this. #quiltsforrefugees made it a reality!|
Berne, the woman who organized this drive, also printed Spoonflower labels for each quilt, and they're beautiful.
|I was hoping for more snow in my picture but it is warm here today and all the snow from yesterday melted!|
I feel good that I could take something I love to do and use it to help someone who is new to Canada adjust to their new home. I hope there is lots of snuggling underneath it, knowing they are welcome here!

Beautiful quilt and beautiful thoughts!ReplyDelete
Love the quilt and the beautiful thought behind it. Well done.ReplyDelete
Love it and the sentiment behind it. My in-laws are helping to support a Syrian family in their community and I sent a baby quilt for their youngest. If I can manage it, I'd like to make quilts for their other three children. :)ReplyDelete
This is an amazing and innovative scheme to welcome Syrian refugees to Canada. Not only is quilting a craft and a skill, these lovely quilts show how welcoming Canada is the crisis faced by people fleeing war and looking for a better way of life. What could be more welcoming than a warm, cozy quilt for those in desperate need.ReplyDelete
There's a cottage industry here waiting to happen and I hope to see this scheme grow more.
