Creativ Festival Fever

Well we have been quiet because we have been feverishly working to get everything ready for the Fall Creativ Festival. It is next weekend on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. This show just keeps getting better and better. We hope to see you all at our booth which is number 1100 and is on the first row to the right of the main entrance doors!

We have a very special surprise for you this year! Debbie Richards has agreed to fly in from Moose Jaw and will be demo-ing in our booth all weekend long! Debbie is best know for her folded quilt designs - and will be showing you how you can do the technique. Aren't these samples just amazing? Wait until you see them in person!

Not too Spooky...Hallowe'en Quilt

I have been working on a little Halloween quilt that was featured in the current issue of Quilt Sampler Magazine. This quit which combines stitcheries with simple piecing was designed by Sandra Workman of Pine Needles. It is nearly finished but I decided I didn't love the outer border which, while it is actually little circles, looks too much like tire treads from a distance so I am going to try the spiderweb fabric instead.

Here's the cute little froggy block and

my favourite, the beware of cat block...


and here is the cat we have to beware of in our house! Pudding isn't much of a helper is he? My hubby thought he was upset that I didn't put the cat block in the centre of the quilt!
