    Default 3 more VictorIa Quilt tops to be finished

    Today I will bring in 3 tops to our VQC meeting. I added the borders from my stash on all 3 tops to make them the required size. A GF is clearing her stash and has been providing us with tops of various size, most are small, so we build them up. 2 of them are M* patterns.

    Suzanne, they are lovely.

    I am curious though, I am assuming that VQC is your local quilt club (guild), but can you tell us about the program the quilts are for?

    Victoria Quilts Canada is a not-for-profit organization run across Canada and not part of my Guild. There are many guild members that belong to groups in their area. In the east end of Ottawa, I believe there are 10 groups alone. Monique is a member of a group in her area. Fabrics for tops are donated, but the batting and flannel backs are purchased from donations, or donated by large companies or LQS. In our area, we have a bedding company that provide bags of large/long cotton scraps. Many we use for borders as they are good lengths. There are some patterns provided that go together fast at meeting. Many members in our group make tops from their scraps, and they can use their own patterns. I can tell you that MSQC tutorials are a favorite. Size should be roughly 52-54 to 70-74".

    Anyone who is undergoing cancer treatments may request a quilt for themselves, often a family member makes the request. There is a national registry, so that only one quilt is given. If a member of a group makes a request, this is usually faster especially if we have a quilt ready to give. We still run approval through the system, but the recipient receives it faster. In more remote parts, the quilt might be shipped, and this is where funds are raised.

    Our group has people who work from home. One lady will handsew the binding. Another LAQ does about 5 tops/mth for us. Our group has 6-8 ladies who tie 2-3 quilts per meeting. I quilt some on my Sweet 16 as does another member of our group. There is a group of church ladies who make bags from orphan blocks. It's really a team effort, and we finish an average of 5-10 quilts per month.

    I don't know how to link to website, but you can google VictorIa Quilts Canada.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Thank you Suzanne for sharing the info about your group. It sounds like a very loving and compassionate group. You've produced so many beautiful quilts that I couldn't help but wonder how you find so many people to bless with your creations.

    I so very much respect and admire you and all the other quilters in this forum who use their talents to give comfort to those in need.

    God bless you all!
