Blogathon Canada is off to the Maritimes!


We're off to the gorgeous Maritimes on Day 2 of Blogathon Canada! Representing the Maritimes are two wonderful quilting bloggers and they have a great list of blogs for you to visit.



The Hosts:


Adrienne at Chezzetcook Modern Quilts

Adrienne has been quilting for about 17 years and blogging about her quilting adventures for nearly two. Adrienne admits to being addicted to fabric. How does she cope with it? By Quilting! Sewing cotton goodness into modern quilts, taking pictures and writing about her projects brings her true happiness! Adrienne grew up in rural Nova Scotia, in a place called Chezzetcook, hence the name of her blog. She recently moved back to Nova Scotia and is having a blast rediscovering home!
