Slab Blocks for Canada's Big Quilt Bee

Layout of 12 blocks for a small quilt
A small group gathered a week ago to make slab blocks which will be assembled into tops for CQA's project of supplying 1000 quilts for Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada. (See the previous post here to read about the project.) We had a great day and accomplished a good amount of work. (Of course we enjoyed some yummy treats too...) A number of blocks were made and several tops were assembled that day, others will be assembled as more blocks come in. If you didn't have the chance to join us on Jan. 28, you can still take part. Jeanne Kaye has lots of Canada 150 fabrics, just give her a call to pick some up and make a slab block or two to contribute. They really are fun to do, and a great way to use up some  leftover strips or scraps. It's a win-win project! Don't miss out!

Here are a few of the blocks that were made.





And one more quilt laid out, ready for assembly...
