The quilt is a queen size bed quilt and is pink, green and black in color. The name of the quilt is The Hope Quilt.

The Hope Quilt was a charity project for Breast Cancer Awareness week at the College of the North Atlantic-Qatar.  It was  all done by Canadian quilters associated with the college – and mostly associated past or present with the Qatar Quilt Guild as well.  The design was based on one of our block of the month designs from the QQG and we used material purchased in Dubai and in the souks here for the top, and backed it with Cancer survivor mottos  on fabric from the US.  It was created into our quilt design by Ruth Benson and me (Shairon Burton), with help from Lori Clarke of our Qatar Quilt Guild who gave us help with measurements and fabric amounts.  Six of us (Ruth, myself, Shelagh Lariviere, Norah Woodrow, Pam Reid, and Jane Pringle) did the blocks for the top and put on the borders. The name was suggested by Marie Glavine – a good colleague and quilting friend who inspired the quilt.  The quilt travelled from Doha to Newfoundland, Canada and back this summer where Carmen Anstey – our long arm quilting friend did the quilting.  And next the student counselors and students are going to put the quilt on tickets to raise funds for Breast Cancer Research during the month of October when we are promoting Breast Cancer Awareness Month.   Great teamwork, for a great cause!
