Sharon, along with guild member Shirley Sellers, researched women making significant contributions to Canadian history. After locating approximately 65 deserving women, they narrowed it down to 30. They secured copyright permissions from sources and ensured that photo credits were respected. The most difficult tasks were to create a one-sentence description of each woman’s incredible contribution to Canada and then create a commemorative block for each of the selected women. Special shout out to Helen Strong for her excellent editing skills and effort!
Fabric was purchased and the piecing fun with Sharon, Shirley and Marian Grimwood began. Next up: Sharon will piece together the backing, Cindy Schellenberg will perform custom quilting, Shirley will create the label and Dianne Kapty will attach the binding.
