Blue and Pink were easy. Purple really stretched me as they had to be A4.

The Purple definitely is not!

My fav is Blue.

More soon.

Brrrrr - It's Cold

We've had snow. We've had ice. We've had the lot!

As I type this the rain is tipping down and we have floods! The snow/rain is pouring off the roof.

Sorry there isn't much quilting to show, but I'm working on some commissioned name quiltlets for a friend and I can't talk about them until they are finished.

More soon.

Celebrating Gwen!

If you are a follower of Gwen Marston you will know that 2013 is the last year Gwen will host, and teach at, the Beaver Island Quilt Retreat in September. The Retreat will still carry on, but will be hosted by Gwen's friends, Sue Nickels and Pat Holly.

So I wondered how we could celebrate Gwen's retirement and show her how much we appreciate her work and style of quilting, and hit upon this idea.

How about making a liberated block of your choosing and size. It could be a liberated star, a liberated tree, a small liberated solids block, anything!

Carol Vandenberg at Quilt as Desired is going to the Retreat in September and has kindly offered to take the blocks with her to present to Gwen. They have to with Carol by the 1st September.

If you are interested in participating leave me a comment and make sure I can contact you so I can send you Carol's address in Canada.

Perhaps you'd like to pass the word on too, though make sure your readers/Followers comment here so I can keep count of the blocks.

More soon.
