Hot Flash Quilt

My friends in the Maple Leaf Quilt Guild are collaborating to develop a design for a Hot Flash Quilt. It was Sherri M's idea originally and several others have contributed. Nancy wants a palm tree in hers. Carol A. likes the Summer's Sun Block from Quilter's Cache.

Time Again For Quilting!

It's been a long time but I've finally got time to quilt. I re-introduced myself to my friends in the Maple Leaf Quilt Guild - a cyber quilt guild made up of a great bunch of Canadian ladies and we're having such fun.

First, I'm taking part in a Round Robin. I've never done this before in my life! But the ladies are so warm and friendly that I feel quite comfortable with them. That's my block on the left. I'm calling it "Purple Ladies Sing The Blues".

As well, Nancy is organizing a Stitch-Along project called Postcards From Canada: a Quilter's Odyssey, featuring 20 different places in Canada....a new one each Sunday. Here's mine:
Some of the other ladies have cleverly incorporated seascapes and ocean fabrics into their blocks. Mine looks more like a visit to Halifax on an acid trip!

I also made a label for my Postcards quilt. Want one? Just give me a shout.
