Sunny February Meeting

Large parts of the UK and Europe may be experiencing severe cold and snow, but on Skye it was a bright and sunny, perfect for a quilting session!

Call for Entries: Alzheimer Scotland Quilt Project

Ann Hill, who is currently Quilter in Residence at Alzheimer Scotland, has put out a call for quilt donations for a project called the Hampden Park Quilt Project 2013.

The aim is to have enough quilts to cover Scotland’s international football pitch at Hampden Park in Glasgow, which is 5,000 square metres so that’s 5,000 one metre square quilts! The quilts will ultimately be sold and all of the funds raised will go to Alzheimer Scotland.

You can see the quilts already submitted here and find all the details on Ann’s website here.
