Community quilts

The Denman Island Quilters regularly make quilts for members of the community who have contributed to the life of the island.
Allison has been teaching yoga for years, but is retiring at the end of 2016. This quilt was pieced by several of the quilters, and a third member was doing the machine quilting, until her husband had to go into hospital. I agreed to finish up the quilting, and now it is off to be bound by yet another member of the guild.
