A get together

Every year the Patchworks Pals from St Anne de Ruisseau and our guild get together for fun sewing days. In May they joined us and we all made 
an apron. 
Some came to hand quilt on our charity quilts .
The hall was buzzing with quilters ' high energies 

The day was filled with laughs, sharing and good food. Nothing is more fun than getting together with other quilters. And the aprons were all so gorgeous! 

I am still on a roll with my place mats. I made a set for a friend and 
 added a table topper   
 The fruit of the spirit is "Joy" And "Self-control "
    "Joy" and " Patience" 
"Peace" and "Gentleness" 
"Goodness and "Love" 
                                     And put all together... you have a set 

Prince Charles and Camilla were in the Maritimes and I noticed she had Nova Scotia tartan on her outfit. 
so I decided to make a table topper with the plaid for the guild's emporium and maybe a visitor this summer to our province.
This one I made because the colors were so bright and cheery, with the "dot"  fabric from Mrs Pugley's Emporium 

     Christmas décor was not forgotten so I made a few 
with a Christmas theme 
and some  Red Cardinals 

I did move away from the Spiral Placemats and started working on 
my Family tree quilt 
 This is the first block

 Then off to my "Words To Live By Quilt "
 Here is BOM  Block #3 Kindness .

 The new mystery challenge for the guild  is to make a quilt with a white or off white background and one other color, therefore the quilt is only two colors. At first I thought ohhh, I think I will skip this challenge as I am not fond of making two color quilts but then Paula, the member of the guild who puts out our Mystery quilt challenges, indicated we  could use different shades of the color. Now I am on the prowl for a pattern and set my project in motion for next year.   


  1. My goodness you've been busy. I"d love to make some of those placemats for a Christmas gift. Do you know where I might find the pattern? I'm sure you'll come up with something quite lovely for your challenge quilt.

    1. Sunny, the pattern is from a Canadian Company "Designs to Share with You " (Spirals) .www.designstoshare.com
