Quilting Monday

The Denman Island Quilters meet twice a month on a Monday. We had a great time today.
This a quilt the group has made to be raffled at the upcoming Craft Faire as a fundraiser for the Marine Stewardship Committee.

The back of the raffle quilt.

This is a collaborative quilt that D.C. and I have been working on together over the past year. D. put on the border, then backed and quilted the piece. She and I are very pleased with it!
Our quilting group meets in the United Church hall. I went next door into the sanctuary to see the Advent calendar that I made last year hung on the wall. What a pleasure.

I finished up the scrap Christmas stockings for the upcoming Craft Faire.
