Strait Area Quilters and the Quilts of Valour

CTV Atlantic dropped by the other day at the local church where myself and the Strait Area Quilters were having a morning sew-in. Most of the ladies sit at the frame and hand quilt, while yours truly usually brings along her 1962 Featherweight and works on small projects. On Wednesday, I was working on the next Quilt of Valour. 


I had a few flags left over, and the gals brought in a whole stack of maple leaf blocks they made, so the newest QOV is starting to grow.  There is a link to the segment. And yes, you just might recognise me in my "celebrity" sweater. Kudos to Kaaren at The Painted Quilt for recognising me because of the stripey sweater I have worn in several blog pics. It is now time to go shopping!

  7. Your interview made me smile :) I bought some Oh Canada fabrics in the fall intending to do a QOV quilt. I didn't hear back from the NS rep yet as to needs/wants so haven't started working on any blocks yet.

  8. I have seen several threads of media on this quilt (your quilt) and I think this an awesome design for the Canadian QOV. Yes, when people start to notice you in the same outfit - time to shop.

  18. It was so fun to hear your voice and actually see you in action. That quilt is so gorgeous! Maybe I need to go shopping with you because I think my clothes haven't changed much either since I retired. Can we stop at a fabric store while we're out looking for clothes? LOL
