Making a Quilt for Canine Partners

 

On Saturday October 13th Stitch45 held a special event to make a quilt to raise funds for the charity Canine Partners. We provided all the materials and many visitors came along and helped put together the quilt blocks. At the end of the day 16 large blocks each made from 32 triangles had been quilted. Diana will be sewing the blocks together and finishing off the quilt as soon as she can. The quilt will then be presented to local quilter and Canine Partner fund raiser Stella Hewett.

 

Here are a few images from the day, including one of Jenson, Stella's own canine partner.
