Thanks to my new quilting friend, Phyllis, I've been having great fun this last few weeks.
When I visited her in August, she generously showed me the |"flying fish" mobiles she had made. She also gave me a short lesson and a copy of the patterns and instructions. The results, as you can see in the attached photos, are quite exciting for one who enjoys "playing with fabric. Fortunately I had most of the materials required in my stash and only had to purchase stiffener for the body. I did indulge myself and bought a half metre of a lovely baik and a spool of matching Egyptian variegated thread that was a joy to use. So here I am fourteen fish later and only stopped because |I ran out of stiffener. I hope you enjoy looking at them.
I am a quilter who enjoys sharing her passion for quilting through her writing and am a member of The Edmonton and District Quilters Guild and the Canadian Association of Quilters.
I enjoy both traditional and modern quilting and always enjoy the challenge of something new and different. I've been making quilts for over thirty years, writing about quilting for over twenty and have been published in such magazines as "Quilt World," "Quilting in Wild Rose Country" "Quilter's Connections" and write a regular column for "The Canadian Quilter" called "The Light-hearted Quilter."
My book "Crazy About Quilting; Confessions of an Average Quilter" was published by Whitecap Books, Vancouver, BC.
I am always interested in hearing and learning from other quilters in Canada and around the world.
