Hello Friends. Its that time of year again when the outside chores compete with the inside chores. Thank God for black-flies! What? Are you crazy, Carla? Well, with the amount of black-flies and mosquitos here in Northern Ontario, you can not stay outside and plant all day. So here's my schedule: Long arm in the morning, outside chores like planting and such in the afternoon and quilting after supper. You see this way, I'm inside when the bugs are bad and I have an excuse to "Keep on Quilting"! :)
It is also that time of year when the Quilting guilds wind down for the summer and have their Year End workshops and Banquets. I was honoured to be asked to be a guest at the Year End Banquet for the Rayside Balfour Quilters Guild. I have had the pleasure of giving some workshops and lectures to the quilter there, and it was such a treat to visit with everyone and share quilting stories. Thank-you so much ladies!
A few weeks ago I hinted that I was working on a very exciting project. Well, I can now proudly share my news. I was the featured pattern designer in the summer issue of the Canadian Quilters Association Magazine. I made a small topper for the magazine which I had so much fun designing. My thanks goes out to all of you for all your kind words and support.
I have been receiving pictures from some of the quilters who joined me in April for the Northern Neighbours workshop. Lorraine finished her bed-runner and I just had to share.
Well that about does it for now. Until next time, stay safe, wear bug repellant, and keep quilting!
