Tabby Road is Here!



Tabby Road is the illustrated adventures of a fabulously sophisticated polka-dotted house cat with flare to spare and her sassy striped kitty sister.


These two crazy kittens spend their days climbing delightfully proportioned banded fruit trees, chasing mice up and down elegant acanthus leaves for sport, coughing up brightly colored fur balls and ending their days with bellies full of artisan-crafted consciously canned, organic cat snacks. If ever there was a cat to envy, this is the one.




Tabby Road is the life of the common house cat as seen through Tula Pink's eyes, transformed into an imaginary world of quirk and color, mischief and mayhem.

Maple Leaf 4 Ever by Felicity Ronaghan from Felicity Quilts

Felicity has been a passionate quilter since the first minute of her first quilting class over 15 years ago. Felicity started her blog, Felicity Quilts, in 2010 to be a journal of sorts, and blogging led her to discover the online world of modern quilting.

It's literally changed my life - I've met friends, expanded my creative life and travelled in ways I'd never imagined. 

When Felicity is not not quilting, she's a wife and mom, and now a job-seeker since her family relocated from Vancouver, BC to Naramata, a small community on Lake Okanagan in BC's wine region.

Inspiration for Maple Leaf 4 Ever

As a centennial baby, I feel especially connected to Canada's Sesquicentennial, so I was thrilled to be asked to participate in this Sampler! I really wanted my block to exude Canadiana and I think four maple leaf blocks fits the bill. Having the colours alternate as leaf/background adds a bit of movement and interest.

Sign up for The Canadian Sampler and make this gorgeous quilt to Celebrate Canada's 150th Anniversary!

Registrations for Round II of The Canadian Sampler starting July 2017 are now open.

Grain Elevator by Jennifer Houlden from Quilts by Jen

Jennifer is a quilt designer, pattern writer, teacher, lover of colour and fabric/fibre addict. She is the proprietor of Quilts by Jen and loves to share her passion for quilting. 

As a young child Jennifer was always creating something with her hands – every craft imaginable - but sewing was never something she wanted to do. Then she found quilting and her whole world changed! She learned how to quilt when living in Yellowknife, NWT and continued quilting when she moved to the Australian Outback. She moved into the world of designing and writing patterns for Arbee Designs while living in Australia. 

Upon her return to Canada in 2011 Jennifer developed her own company and started writing patterns under her own label as well as teaching and speaking at local guilds and shops.

Inspiration for Grain Elevator

I grew up in Saskatchewan where grain elevators dotted the landscape and were an icon of the prairies. These wooden elevators are few and far between now as most have burnt, collapsed or been removed and replaced by large concrete versions. My block for this great project is a tribute to the wooden grain elevators that lined the prairie landscape as we travelled the prairie roads to visit friends and relatives.
