Endowment Committee Supports Guild P-Kic Charity

The Endowment Committee of the Edmonton and District Quilter's Guild supports two scholarships (Undergraduate and Graduate) at the University of Alberta and we also support other committees within the guild, ie: charity project or community service. The community service group that the guild has chosen this year is Pediatrics for Kid in Care (P-Kic), a program for children (aged newborn to 17) receiving medical care or assessment at the Grey Nuns Hospital in Edmonton. They have suggested the sew-easy pattern of a disappearing 9-patch as an easy quilt for members to make. Alongside that the Endowment Committee's theme this year is "A Little Birdie Told Me". 

The Endowment Committee brought together 5" squares of bird and bird themed (birdhouses etc) fabrics, sorted and distributed amongst our group. Two of the quilts were brought out to guild meeting last night. I created "The Dark Drake", size 72" x 72" for an older child. It also features a wonderful cozy brown flannel with small mallards floating on the back.

The beautiful little quilt shown here was made by a new member of the Endowment Committee, Vicki Robson. It is so delicate and with that lovely scalloped border it is a little quilt to fall in love with.

Our wish for the children that receive these quilts, is to feel the love that has gone into the making of these cotton hugs.
