The 15th annual Quilt Walk and Car Show is a unique event that not only showcases vintage cars, but also hand-made quilts made by many talented artists from around the province.
Expect to see up to 150 quilts as all the storefront windows of historic Ladner Village will be filled with beautifully colourful quilts.
Open Space Yoga Studio will be displaying oversize and antique quilts, while the Boundary Bay Quilters Guild is organizing this year’s Quilts of Valor and baby quilt entries, which will be located at the Ladner United Church.
The mission of Quilts of Valour – Canada is to present quilts to injured or ill military members, past and present. To date, Quilts of Valour – Canada (QOVC) has presented close to 12,000 quilts. Most recently, Second World War veteran Lloyd Jones from Tsawwassen, who passed away in late July at the age of 96, was presented a Quilt of Valor last November at the Tsawwassen Legion by members of the BB Quilters Guild.
The quilts that will be on display throughout the Village have been lovingly made by local B.C. quilters. The options are endless from those made by young children to those original ideas of local designers and everything in between.
Anyone can enter a quilt they have made and there is no limit to the number of quilts you can choose to enter. The cost to register a quilt is just $3 and that money all goes to the Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation in support of Delta Hospital.
