Hey Everyone…..March is certainly going out like a lion, still had snow this past week, high winds and rain/freezing rain….however today is a lovely day so far and the birds are singing!
We have a few things going on …. Thursday night I spent an enjoyable evening at the East Toronto Quilt Guild and gave a talk about modern quilting, and shared some of my own quilts (and who are we kidding, a few tops and one unbound almost all quilted quilted – may as well “keep it real”), it was a nice group and they tell me they enjoyed themselves. Since more than one person was so kind I am going to say it wasn’t pity……lol. I had to return my youngest daughter’s quilt to the top of the sleeping kid on my return….it had a temporary pass to the leave the house only, and yes, she checked and commented in the morning. I guess she appreciates the quilt at least!
Coming up this weekend is my guild’s show! We will not discuss how prepared I may, or may not be……but if you are at all in the area come on by! It is a new venue for the guild, ample parking, near restaurants and the mall if you are making a day trip of it, in addition to our own tea shop with sandwiches at the show. Lots of quilts will be on display, there are vendors of course (I am one), a quilt appraiser and a few other little surprises! Here is the link -http://rvqgquiltshow.blogspot.ca/ check it out, or if you have any questions ask!
In the scramble to get a “trunk show” together for the talk here are a few finishes or tops…..
This is the “Tudor” collection by Fabric Freedom out of London, UK, the company does an exquisite job of adding decorative metallic gold line to fabrics.
This is one block of the trip around the world pattern, done really big. Truth be told I will hang this quilt the other way once in the shop today, Mr. LCY has hung it horizontally. All KF Collective prints as you can see….the targets are a favourite of mine.
In other exciting news we are having a KF themed give away in the shop…….if you are in the store ask how to enter! The prize is a neat Fassett patterned nylon shopping (or whatever else you desire) bag, plus a couple of fat quarters, and a copy of last falls book signed by Kaffe and Brandon during their visit in October. Come by and check it out.
