Where is spring?

We are not experiencing the full sense of spring here yet but we are not as unfortunate like some other Canadian provinces. The low temperatures is the only thing affecting our spring growth.

The members of "La Guilde Acadienne de Clare" were very excited to make the "Braid" Table runner because it is a quilt-as-you-go, so I decided to put another such project together and came up with this one.......

I did not give it a name and I challenged the Guilde members to come up with a name for our new project. They have until the end of the month to submit their ideas.. and a draw will determine the name of the runner... It is almost long enough to make it into a bed scarf so I may make another one and add a another block for that purpose.

The May workshop at the "guilde" ( spelled with an "e" in french) will be given by one of our members.. Debra Howard, and this is the project she will be teaching...

A scrappy Lone Star... This is the quilt in its entirety....A B S O L U T E L Y gorgeous...I know everyone will enjoy working on this project♥♥♥

As for me; I finished my "Garden Party" and it is at Agnes' being quilted. As soon as I have the binding sewn on I will post it.. It is one of my favourite project .

My grand-daugthers are growing and soooo very special...:)
Ariane 8, Amy 22, Émile 2, and Laurène 10. This was taken at Easter . No grand-sons yet....

Have a good week.. Canada has been in the election mode for a while now and tomorrow we vote!

Yes, Canadians lets do it! Go Vote.....


  1. That table runner is so pretty, Joan! And I love the scrappy lone star, how gorgeous. Your grandchildren are just beautiful!!!!! I shall try to send some spring your way....

  2. Our family went to the advanced polls just to get it done. There was a surprising number of people who did the same thing.
    I love the idea of working within a group. It brings people closer together and you make so many wonderful friends. Our guild used to do that but things fell by the wayside.
    Your family is lovely and as a very new grandmother, I know that yours are cherished.

  3. They are growing fast...what beautiful girls!!! Love those quilts! & your header!!!

  4. Hi, Joan. Your granddaughters are beautiful - lucky you!
    Have you chosen a name for your runner as yet? I am curious as to what a bed scarf is, as I've never heard that term.
