Swallowtail Quilt

A local quilting guild, Tidal Threads Quilt and Needlework Guild, on the island have been producing wonderful quilts that they have been donating to charities to be raffled.

Last year the quilt was donated to the Rotary Club and each square was a smoke house, which used to be a prominent feature of every community on the island and used to smoke herring. The quilt raffle was very successful.

This year the quilt was donated to the Action Ministries as a fund-raiser and is entitled "Let it Shine" and highlights Swallowtail Lighthouse. See for yourself:
