As our third year winds down, we are all busy scrambling to get our homes all ready for the upcoming holidays as well as finish all that Christmas shopping. Many of us still have gifts and decorations to finish, too.
Our quilters have been busy turning some of our squares into quilts for premature infants. It’s not only something we enjoy doing, it’s also a great way for our quilters to see how easy it is to work with Aida cloth. I know, that sounds strange but most quilters work with the poly-cotton quilting fabrics. Aida is a lot thicker and stiffer than what they are used to, even after we wash it. There are more pictures in our Premature Infant Quilts Gallery as we simply have too many to post here!!
Our final quilt for 2016 will be heading to the quilter in early January. It’s hard to believe because we don’t have that many pictures up in the gallery of the squares, but we are all stitching like crazy to make this happen. We have also started assembling some of our Quilter’s Block Party pieces into quilts. We should have pictures soon.
It’s always exciting around Canada Stitches. We have several quilt requests already for next year. If you are a quilter, machine embroiderer, or hand cross stitcher and want to get in on the fun, please do contact us and we will be more than happy to let you join our merry crew.
Until next time, Happy Stitching! And may you and your family enjoy the warmest of holidays!
