Our guild has taken part in her quilt show and will be again this summer.

The above quilt was on display this past summer.
I just spent 3 nights in Edmonton at my nurses union agm. It was get. The 5 speakers that they had were all interesting.

Happy Quilting

This picture is of the Ricky Timms convergence pattern. I took a class a few months ago and really enjoyed it. This is just the top and I still haven't gotten it any further at the moment. I'm not sure if I want to make it any bigger or not.
I was a little behind in my birthday block swap so I just finished 2 of the 3 that I needed to do. They are now ready to mail. The last one will be late too if I don't get it done this week early. So that is my next goal.
I finally finished my rag quilt for my dad but haven't washed it yet to rag it.
Happy quilting to everyone

This picture is of a birthday block done for a swap that I'm in. It has already been sent and now I see a problem. Too late.
Don't know why I didn't see it before.
I just finished the quilt I was making for my dad. He has been undergoing treatment for cancer of the esphagus. Now I just have to figure out the best way to sent it. He lives near Ottawa and I am near Calgary. I haven't taken a picture yet. If it is nice out tomorrow maybe I'll hang it on the clothes line and get a picture.
Happy quilting everyone.

quilt show pic

Here is another picture from a quilt show I attended this past summer. Hope you enjoy seeing it.
I'm in the middle of trying to get a rag quilt finished and I have discovered Inklingo and want to do some
english paper piecing using her method and with papers I am quite excited about it. But no time yet.

give away Oct. 1

Hi everyone. Well, there were not very many in this giveaway. Maybe that's because I didn't say what I was giving away.
I'll have to do better next time. There were only 3 comments and I was an answer that I put in so there are only 2 possible winners.
I decided I will send a small gift to each of the commenters. Thank you for your comments and interest.
Carolyn in NC and Just me are the 2 luck winners. I will comment on your blogs to ask for your mailing addresses so I can send my gift. Awaiting your reply.
Happy quilting,
