PQ18

PAINTED QUILT BEES!  

This project was the WINNER of the 2014 “LET’S MAKE A PITCH”, a contest hosted and created by the Town of Strathmore.

The idea of the project is to connect adults in community while they get the opportunity to discover and experience art and, at the same time, beautify the downtown area in Strathmore.  The quilts are painted art pieces which will be hung on the sides of buildings.

IF YOU ARE A STRATHMORE TOWN BUILDING OWNER OR KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS, YOU CAN HAVE ONE OF THESE QUILTS ON YOUR BUILDING!  CALL 403 983 3640 FOR MORE INFORMATION.

Daytime, Evening and Weekend Bees
Each quilt will takes 8 hours to complete. Our goal is to create as many quality experiences of creating quilts.
