Let's pop in a few statistics. In September, 39 guilds entered their inches, in October 61 came out and tallied their totals! Way to go quilters.
The total inches doubled from September to October. Here we are all the way to almost Val D'or Quebec. (The black and white quilt block is marking our progress each month.) We are making a stop here till next month, so everybody better practice saying this:
Ou se trouve le plus proche magasin de la courtepointe? (Where is the nearest quilt store?)
Our guild, Paradise Village Quilters in Nova Scotia, is adding our inches to the challenge of Quilt Across Canada. To date, we have 10,878 inches. We have been very busy the past couple months. One of our main contributors to this are all the baby/children quilts we are making for the IWK Children’s Hospital in Halifax. I think this is also motivating to many of our guild members to finish some of those UFOs so we can add up more inches. We are so very pleased to be able to add this big a number for such a small group (30 members).
Can you believe the dedication of this little group? You guys have spirit!
Keep racking up those inches quilters, and we will see where we go next month!
