Welcome to Blog-A-Thon Canada

If you are stopping by from the last day of the Blog-a-Thon, I'd like to welcome you with an introduction.

I live in Kitchener, Ontario, which has a very active quilting community. Some say the Waterloo Region is the Quilt Capital of Canada!  Quilt shows and quilt stores abound in this area, so there is no shortage of inspiration. Along with making quilts, I like to get out to see the wonderful quilts that others have made. I also like photography, cooking, gardening, cycling, nature, and travelling. I've been known to sew many different kinds of items, and have on occasion picked up knitting or embroidery needles.

This Blog-A-Thon is a Canadian adventure, sponsored by the great Sew Sisters Quilt Shop, and the hosts for today are Jackie's Art Quilts, and Krista Quilts. You may hop on over to win great prizes by leaving a comment, and have a look at other Canadian bloggers you might not yet have seen.

I'd like to show you a few of the quilts I've made.

In other news:  My home team, the Saskatchewan Roughriders, are playing in the Grey Cup tomorrow. I don't usually keep track of or watch football, but when the Grey Cup is on the line, and the 'Riders are playing, I'm paying attention!  Go 'Riders.


  1. Thanks for doing a special post for Blogathon Canada!

  2. Waving hello from Calgary! Thanks so much for sharing some of your gorgeous quilts with us on the hop. Your Magnolia quilt is like two quilts in one as both sides are beautiful.

  3. Hi there... waving at you from south of the 401 in Cambridge!
    Enjoyed visiting your blog today!

  4. Hello from Halifax! Your quilts are wonderful! I love your Magnolia. We are rootin' for the Riders too.

  5. All of your quilts are lovely though I particularly like 'Wintergreen', it's the quilt I would want to wrap around myself on a cold or sad day but also on a happy day to celebrate.

  6. Magnolia is a beautiful and fascinating quilt! I am curious - is it hand or machine quilted and did you have any special challenges lining the top and back up when you did quilt it?

  7. I love Wintergreen! A great scrap quilt. How big are those blocks?

  8. Great post and wonderful quilts! Nice to see you neighbour!

  9. Great quilts, yeh you participated! I'm way too busy with my Midnight Over the Oasis QA and organizing my upcoming Crazy Quilt Along 2014. It all starts in late January.
