wonderful trip... ...

I attended 
in Toronto and it was so enjoyable I am booked at the same Motel for next year. Yes quilt Canada 2017 will be in Toronto again. Keep your eyes peeled to the CQA website for information about this event as it unfolds.
There were so many lovely quilts and projects. This one was people's choice 
Isn't this absolutely fantastic? 
The picture does not do it justice.

I registered for two workshops on ruler quilting and free motion feathers with the wonderful and talented 
 teacher Amy Van Gurp  Professional Computerized Longarm Quilting
who lives in PEI.  
Came home very inspired.

Now I am off to preparing our quilt show 
which will be held all next week. 

I have not been able to fill all my wish list for this year's quilt show. Sewing was put on the back burner for a while and I am only now getting back to sewing new projects.

This is my Summer Blooms which had been in the \
"to be quilted pile" 
 This winter my friend Clara came and set me up with the quilting frames and 
 I hand quilted it. It was very relaxing and I do hope to hand quilt another one this winter.

Oh! MY! look who turned sixteen. 

   Yes my grand-daughter Laurène and of course comes the driver's license so I gave her my car. 

I hope to see many of you at the Quilt show and I will post some pictures after the show closes. 
If you have any question about the show e-mail me.
Happy sewing♥
