I Am On The Road

 I haven't posted for a few days as I am at the other end of our fine country at the Canadian Quilters Association annual conference.   This year it is in Penticton, British Columbia.  

I have two quilts in the National Juried Show and am just so excited to see them actually hanging when the show opens on Thursday.  

I had time today to tour some wonderful vineyards and do a little wine tasting.

One thing I did notice is the doors on many of the wineries were huge.  Or maybe they just got bigger in my mind as the day went on!   Kidding=)

I better show a bit of quilting in here or you may really start questioning my passions.
This is a heart block made for a quilter who is having some medical issues and quilters were asked to make a 6 1/2" heart block.   Of course it is fused and machine appliqued, but the design is mine and I tried to make it whimsical by the little flair at the bottom.  I used The Quilted Fish's  polka dot fabric.

I will be back later in the week with more photos once the conference opens with all the shows!

I will look forward to your future posts because I could not attend the show in Penticton this year. Hope you have a great time and that you win a prize on your entries.

It was so wonderful to meet you Jackie! So sorry I didn't get a better chance to talk, but something you said distracted me :)
