The Quilting Grannies

Hand Made Queen Size Christmas Themed Cotton Quilt. The Quilting Grannies, established by Muriel Robertson and Annie Wilson in 2000 continues to grow in numbers as the ladies in the family begin to show interest in being part of this worthwhile tradition – and many aren’t “grannies” at all with their youngest ever member being only 8 years old! This year, the group ranges in age from 9 to 80, consisting of four generations and spanning across Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI. Their signature is a heart and you will find at least one on every quilt The Quilting Grannies make. This year’s quilt is a tribute to Annie, who passed away this spring. Valued at $1,000 Donated by : The Quilting Grannies
