Deborah Seigel is shown here in her living room where she proudly displays her Circle of Friendship quilt which I made for her and her husband Ron. This quilt is a fabric representation of the Kindness and Giving Circle logo of the Acts of Kindness Network that Deborah founded in Halton Region in remembrance of her mother.
Deborah and Ron Seigel are shown here at our recent December meeting of the Halton Quilters' Guild. Our guild members help support the Holiday Gift Drive each year by bringing toiletries and other gifts for people in group homes, seniors residences, families in need, etc. We also donate ten or more of our Cuddle Quilts for those who need some extra warmth at this time of year. To learn more about the work of the Acts of Kindness network go to www.aokn.ca.
Amanda is shown here proudly displaying a very special Christmas quilt that I made for her so that she could surprise her family with a memory quilt made from her father's shirts. The quilt top is made from the sleeves and fronts of the shirts and the back is made from the shirt backs. The binding is also made from assorted strips cut from the shirts.
This is the label that has been stitched onto the back of the quilt so that the purpose and the special meaning of this quilt will be documented for friends and family. This quilt will be treasured for many years to come.
