    Cool Hampden Quilt Challenge - Glasgow, Scotland

    On Saturday 8th June 2013, almost 4,000 donated quilts were displayed at Hampden Park National Football Stadium, Glasgow. This was a project started by Ann Hill, Quilter in Residence for Alzheimer Scotland to raise funds for this Charity. It was a wonderful day with glorious weather and I was delighted to have taken part in, and attend this event.

    What a great way to display quilts! It must have been great to wander down the rows to see the quilts.

    Would have loved being able to walk among the rows and see each and every one!
