Back home for a bit-Phew!!!

Summer was supposed to be down time for reorganizing and designing-didn’t turn out that way though I did get a few finished. I toured the province from Ottawa to Hamilton to Owen Sound and re-connected with some old friends plus got to meet lots of new ones. The fall schedule is pretty full now and the calendar has been updated. Maybe I will get to see you on my travels?

First up-a Row by Row quilt. Visit Prescott’s We R Quilts and Renfrew’s Valley Needleworx to collect their rows and pick up this cute four row pattern! The pattern including just the two add on rows is available now and the full pattern will be available for purchase through the website and at the two shops in November.

Second-Debbie at Muskoka Quilting asked for a moose and I finally got one made that I like! Patterns are available through the website, patterns and kits are available through Debbie at Muskoka Quilting.

Third-I was fortunate to be asked to participate in the Copper Kettle festival in Creemore, Ontario a couple of weeks ago. I taught some classes, had a trunk show (complete with beer tasting and brewery tours!) and designed a beer pattern. A version of the quilt was presented to the brewery and hangs in their retail shop. Patterns are available through the website, patterns and kits are available through Cheryl at Creemore House of Stitches.


QQ160 It’s All About the Beer is available under Fusible Projects in the Shop

I’ve been working with Peggy Race from Contemporary Sewing Materials and she has been an awesome booster- the beer quilt was designed for their fabric line and they plan to distribute both it and a number of other patterns in the next few months, she even made it to Creemore for part of the festival!

Finally, the Valley View Quilt pattern is available-through the web site or at one of the Valley shops that participated in the Edge of 17 Hop held last June.

I hope to update the web site with lots of pictures over the next little while-I have been receiving lots of submissions from people making quilts-keep them coming, I love them! there are a whole bunch of new designs in the works-everything from a steampunk style quilt to quilts celebrating wine, martinis and fall 🙂
