r-anne-dom : a place for me (anne) to leave random blog posts.
Such as:
..knitting, sewing, and other random activities pursued
..Girl Guides of Canada : yep, Guiding Lives Here
..the 4 shops on Etsy : one features quality handmade items; the second has lots of patterns, & crafting supplies; the third is stocked with Vintage; and the fourth is guiding flowers.
Enjoy the r-anne-domness!

Quilting - Oakridge Girl Guides

A Girl Guide Quilt
Oakridge Girl Guides
with contributions from the Sparks, Brownies, Guides & Pathfinders of Oakridge

Girl Guides celebrated their 100th anniversary in 2010. 
As part of the anniversary/centennial celebrations, Quilt Canada invited Girl Guides to put on a Special Exhibit of '100 years of Guiding' in quilts.

Girl Guides have been making quilt for years, and they could not display them all since many have been made as service projects and given away to those in need. Others have been made as gifts for retiring Guiders while others have been raffled off to raise funds for camps and activities.

Quilt Canada managed to borrow a number of quilts to exhibit, and included a photo display in order to show as many as possible.

We submitted photos of this Guiding quilt. It is beautiful and includes squares made by the Sparks, Brownies, Guides and Pathfinders of Oakridge (in London Ontario Canada).
