The month before and the weeks after Christmas were very busy. Apart from the usual festive activities, I was trying to finish a quilt for our little three-year old grand-daughter, Grace, whom we were to meet in Hawaii in early January. Happily, I was able to complete it in time for it to travel with us to Hawaii and from there to Singapore where Grace and her parents live. We had a lovely time together in Hawaii and now are trying to adjust to the winter weather again in Edmonton. Fortunately the temperatures are above zero, which makes it a little easier. With the fabric I bought in Hawaii (not to mention what I have already on hand!), I have lots of options for new quilts and the only problem now is to decide where to begin.
Apologies to all my friends, who never received an invitation to our home over Christmas. With any luck we'll get together in February!
Here's the quilt I made for my grand-daughter called "Grace's Butterflies."
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.
