Denman Island Quilters Community Quilt for Mike Lindsay
Mike does so much for everyone in the local community. The Denman Island Quilters made him a quilt in appreciation. He opened the quilt at the quilters' display at the Christmas Craft Faire on December 6, 2014.
This is a good shot of the quilt, but not so good of Mike.
