Joyful Blooms at Quilt Canada

It's nice to have my Joyful Blooms quilt home! This is the first time I've had a quilt gone so long - the pattern for it was published in the Spring Issue of A Needle Pulling Thread.

What was even more fun is that I got to travel all the way to Mississauga to bring it home. I was fortunate enough to get to go to Quilt Canada 2016!

You might have seen this photo on my Facebook page over the weekend. What a thrill to see it hanging among so many other beautiful quilts. I went to the show with my mother in law and we decided the quilt looked so good that we would leave it hanging one more day and come back!

The best part of the show was meeting people and sharing quilting stories. Here I am in a photo 'outtake' that I hope Carla enjoys too! She is the editor at QUILTsocial.com where I have been so fortunate to contribute as a blogger. It was wonderful to be surrounded by so many quilts and quilters - I needed to get home and quilt:)

Of course, what's a visit to a quilt show without bringing home some souvenirs! I had to buy some bright Kaffe fabrics. Seeing all of the vendors with their quilted signs made me really want to make one for my space. The orange print was bought with making my own quilted sign in mind. And my first license plate of the Row by Row experience for this year - I saw more, but this one really spoke to me. Since I haven't done anything yet with the few I got last year, I'm not going to spend all of my fabric budget on them.

This row was really cute too - 3D bed quilts! The store is Ruti's Needlebed in Mississauga. And the prints are from Northcott - they make great mini quilts, don't you think?


I'm pretty much recovered from the long road trip and all the walking! A few more weeks of teaching and I can quilt all day:)


What's your favorite part of attending a quilt show? 


With Joy,

So much excitement for you! I love the design and your colors in your famous quilt. How long until school is out for you? You need some more time for stitching. ;)
