Quilting

Sylvan Lake Brownies and residents of Sylvan Lake Seniors Lodge created a one-of-a-kind quilt recently.

Sylvan Lake Brownies and residents of Sylvan Lake Seniors Lodge created a one-of-a-kind quilt recently. The creation was developed with the interest of both groups.

Sylvan Lake is celebrating being 100 years old and so is Guiding in Alberta. The quilt had Guiding memories and pictures of the past 100 years for both generations to colour and complete. Once the quilt was coloured and outlined, Mathilde Umlah created a beautiful quilt. There were enough squares to build two quilts, one of which will be hung on the wall at the lodge. It will also be at the quilt show during 1913 Days events June 14 and 15 and the community centre.

The 12 areas of Guiding in Alberta and the territories were challenged to build 1,200 quilts. Our area has been able to give 17 people quilts and 44 pet quilts. The pet quilts are being donated to pet shelters and the SPCA.
