Welcome to my stop on the Blogathon Canada tour! It's a sad day, because the blogathon is ending today. But I hope you had a good time and dropped by a lot of new blogs over the course of the week. And to ease the pain as our fun ends, there's another great giveaway at the bottom of this post!
I am an avid quilter, in whatever spare time I can scrounge from my days. Now that my sons are older (17 and 19) I have a lot more time for quilting, and I've been making full use of those opportunities. I've lived in Ottawa for over 20 years now, and I love it here. I've been quilting for almost 10 years, and often design my own quilts. I thought I'd give you a quick tour of some of my favourite quilts.
I designed this quilt based on an M.C. Escher print. More hexagons and triangles :) I call it Metamorphosis after the Escher print that inspired it.
And this quilt was probably my first "modern" quilt. And one of my first designs which I've actually made available for sale. And I made most of this quilt when I was in Texas at my very first quilt retreat. That's a lot of firsts, for one little quilt :)
I designed this quilt because I wanted to see what I could do with fractals - ever-increasing stars inside each other. I found my limit at a 3" lemoyne star in the center.
Be sure to drop by some of the other blogs on the tour. Jackie is our other host for today, and you can find her over at Jackie's Art Quilts And, to keep you blog hopping, here are a few more of the wonderful Ontario bloggers you can check out.
I love batiks, and when I saw this rainbow fabric I knew it had to be part of my giveaway. The bundle includes 1 metre of Tonga Celebrate Batiks - Sketchbook Rainbow, and 6 fat quarters from the same collection.
And don't forget to drop by the Sew-Sisters blog, for a great giveaway from Robert Kaufman.
