I Believe in Blue 2017

OMG, it is year seven of our I Believe in Blue quilt campaign! We’ve been working on our Canuck Place quilts since February and will be making the delivery in September this year.

<–  Fin spends a lot of time at Canuck Place entertaining the kids and since the last Fin quilt was made in 2014 I thought it was time for another. This quilt is a team effort by my sister Pat who made the blocks and then passed it on to me to do the applique work. Can’t wait to get it quilted!

Over the seven years I can recall three other Fin quilts.

My good friend & quilter, Doris, from Powell River worked on this Fin quilt. Jamie sponsored this quilt and silk screened this awesome Fin and flowers onto a whole piece of fabric which Doris then sewed into the quilt.

This quilt reminds me of picket fences and flowers in the spring. Click on the pictures to get a full size view of the quilt.

 

 

<– Fin made two appearances in 2013. Another good friend & quilter from Powell River, Wanda, enlarged this picture of Fin from Canucks Kids Club & then appliqued it on top of the quilt flimsy.  FYI, there are a lot of cool things for kids to see and do from this website http://kids.nucksnation.com/ —> This Fin was created in a “Flat Stanley” form using a cute stuffy that belongs to my grandson, Sawyer.

Hey Fin!! Over here!!! If the kids at Canuck Place Children’s Hospice love Fin as much as Sawyer does, there’ll be a lot of smiles with this latest Fin and his heart shaped bubbles.

This years crop of quilts has an awesome animal theme from whales to penguins to birds to ladybugs & more sea creatures.

Can’t wait for delivery day!!   Happy quilting…Valerie Raye
