Our national conference hosted by the Canadian Quilters' Association took place a week ago. This was the end of my term as President of this wonderful organization. I had the opportunity to emcee 3 events and had an absolute blast!
My trip out was a big of a long one so I packed my circles to make hexies with me.
I made some on the airplane.
My pile is getting bigger and bigger!
When I arrived, one of the board members fancied us up by cool nail stickers!
The University of Lethbridge welcomed us with open arms!
The Merchant Mall had so much eye candy!
I couldn't help but come home with a few treats!
One of the highlights was a quilter loved my 'Creative Cousin' column and wanted a picture with me.
I had the opportunity to give tours to high school and university students on behalf of CQA/ACC of the National Juried Show. Here are the winners if you want to see some real talent in Canadian Quilters. This quilt I am talking about won Best of Show by quilter Judy Leslie.
The Canadian Quilters' Association even had a free tattoo parlour!
Bill Kerr was a highlight to the week giving a lecture on modern quilting.
Our annual fundraiser sponsored by Trend-Tex Fabrics was a blast, featured is winning quilt by Joanne Love.
CQA/ACC produces a small magazine of the National Juried show entrants and look what showed up in Janome's ad in the mag!
As President, I got to pick the cover quilt, which I just had to pick Jeannie Jenkins modern quilt!
There is a small piece of my quilt!
On the back cover of the mag is my 'Rockin' the Rainbow' quilt! I can't believe how far this quilt has gone....not all the secrets about this quilt have been released yet=)
It was an absolute blast and I look forward to Quilt Canada 2016 in Toronto Ontario. As I finish my term as President, I have some wonderful opportunities on the horizon that showed up shortly the conference ended and I look forward to pursuing them! Yes, they are all quilt related=)
