Foldi - What a wonderful quilt!  Thank you so much for your generous donation.   :ty

In the meantime, word is spreading.  I love the Times Square announcement, and the Sandhill Cranes.  Something tells me that word of this wonderful quilt will be travelling.

Only this morning I spied this, on a passing sailboat!

Mel must be behind the pirating.  Where's the rum?

During the naming ceremony for Scootch, was the quilt absconded and taken for display at the Prince of Wales Theater?

Thanks to the generosity and artistic talent of one of
our long-time supporters, HEGPS has been given an opportunity to
offer, for auction, a unique art work and labour of love.



"Fol-di-rol" has created an amazing quilt "Eagles on the Shore"
and will donate the proceeds of the auction to HEGPS. Fol-di-rol has
previously auctioned two of her quilts on our behalf  and created quite
a bidding war on eBay! We thank her for offering her latest creation
to benefit HEGPS.

This stunning quilt features not only bald eagles, but many other
avian beauties. Fol-di-rol's design and color skills make this quilt
exceptional; the professional quilting highlights the design.

As it is Victoria Day in Canada (a national holiday in honour of Queen Victoria) I cannot think of a better place for Foldi's quilt to be than here:



The Victoria Memorial in front of Buckingham Palace! 

Now we know why "the Royals" came to Canada to bid on the quilt.  It must have been shipped home to "mummy" to put on display for all to see.   :mhihi

This quilt really seems to be getting around.  I have wondered whether there might be 'quilt forgeries' being hurriedly created?  Hope they have the original hanging in London for Victoria day, but now I'm wondering.
