Making Olympic Memories

Last night at our Hockey Night in Canada Widows Club, one of our beginner students came in to get caught up on her homework.  She asked if we knew of a quick table topper pattern she could get done in a couple of hours using some Canadian-themed fabric.  A little thinking, and by the end of the night, not only did she have her homework caught up, she had a topper for her coffee table finished!

Why the urgency?  Well, this is Marlene Robanske, whose son, Chris Robanske, was headed for Sochi last night.  He is one of our Canadian athletes who will be competing on February 17th in the Olympic snowboard cross events. 

Now Marlene will have a topper she can proudly display in case visitors come by for the big day.  It doesn’t get much more exciting than that!

(The fabric is Oh Canada! by Northcott Silk Inc. – the only Canadian quilting cotton converter.  How appropriate!)
