The Casket - - Local -

On Oct. 18, the High­land Quilt Guild pre­sented 14 hand­made quilts to the Jor­don Myles Foun­da­tion (JMF). The quilts are to be in­cluded in some of the ‘You Mat­ter’ bags, pre­sented to ev­ery per­son seek­ing men­tal health ser­vices at St. Martha's Re­gional Hospi­tal.

Each year, the guild chooses a com­mu­nity project in which to do­nate a quilt and, in 2017, de­cided to do­nate as many quilts as the mem­bers could make in a day to­ward the JMF.

“It was our most am­bi­tious project to date, and mem­bers en­joyed the en­tire process,” Dorinda Mc­cully, co-chair of the High­land Quilt Guild, said.

“We held an eight-hour sew day, and part­nered off in pairs. Us­ing fab­rics brought from home, we as­sem­bled and ma­chine pieced the quilts right there. Once they were pieced, Yvonne Lynch took them home and quilted them on her long arm ma­chine.”
