I Believe in Blue

The dream is a reality. The “I Believe in Blue” quilt pattern and fabric kits are ready to go. We are really pleased with the enthusiasm from quilters and non quilters alike. Canuck fans are purchasing kits for their quilting friends to complete and donate to Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. The staff at Canuck Place are equally enthusiastic to receive these quilts on behalf of the children and their families. The quilt pattern can be made up of 9 or 12 Crossroads blocks. We are asking quilters to use their creativity to make the quilt one of a kind. I chose to applique “Burrows 14″ on my quilt as I am a huge fan of Alexandre Burrows. Burrows made it to the NHL undrafted, working his way up from the lowest of leagues until he was signed by the Vancouver Canucks. On April 26, 2011 he had the overtime, game winning goal in game 7 against the Chicago Blackhawks. The Canucks now have 9 wins on their way to the Stanley Cup. They need 16 wins equalling 16 quilts to get there. Here’s to believing they will go all the way!  Go Canucks Go!!
