Every November during one of the hockey games in town there is what is called a Teddy Bear drop when the audience throws stuffed animals on the ice after the first goal is made.
Later these critters and many more end up donated and received by the the guild. Members choose one or more and take them home to make them a little quilt. They are all brought back to the November meeting and will be given to children for Christmas through our local Christmas Cheer!
This is just some of them!
My little bear was very outdoorsy so his quilt was made as if it was going to be in a fishing/hunting type of camp. (don’t ask me why I didn’t take a picture of the quilt, because I really don’t know)
Alva was able to finally finish up her flannel fatquarter bundle for her bear, what a wonderful snuggly quilt for a little one to enjoy! (this picture was taken before the meeting when Alva always offers a tutorial on a different technique.)
The most fun and artistic one and my personal favourite was the one that Joyce McKinnon made for her Bunny. She made Cabbage Leaves and added a crocheted carrot!
