During WWII, Canadian women made hundreds of thousands of quilts which were sent to Britain by the Canadian Red Cross, as civilian relief.  Though often made from scrap materials, many of them show ingenuity and creativity in their design.  These quilts raised the spirits of those who received them, touched by the kindness of strangers in a frightening time.
