Blogathon Canada - Day 3: Alberta


Welcome to my stop for Blogathon Canada - Edmonton, Alberta. My internet friend Kelsey from Everyday Fray is hosting from Calgary, Alberta and you will want to check her post out too. 

Untitled

First I get to tell you a bit about me. I have been sewing, knitting, embroidering and crocheting since I was about 5 years old, taught by my super talented Grandmother. I put off quilting for years as it is not very portable but one very rainy March break holiday in 2010 I gave in and made my first quilt with the design help of my kids. A year later I began this blog and the rest is history.

All the Colours

I enjoy learning about all kinds of quilting techniques but over the years it has become clear to me that I most love modern quilting. I mostly design my own quilt patterns now, but not always For example, the pattern of the quilt pictured above is by my friend Krista, who blogs at Poppyprint and lives in Vancouver.

I did not actually meet Krista in person in Canada, instead we had to both head over to London, England to actually meet up. We attended the Fat Quarterly Retreat - I've been twice - where I have had the pleasure of meeting many quilters from the UK who I had previously met online.

The Sixties Pillows

I especially love the quilting part of quilting, so much so that I purchased a beautiful Millennium APQS Long Arm Quilting Machine in February 2013. I have been having the best time learning to quilt with it.

Sunset

I am a member of the Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild and I attended the Modern Quilt Guild's first QuiltCon and I'll be at QuiltCon again in February next year. Besides QuiltCon and the Fat Quarterly Retreat, I have been able to meet quilters at Sewdown Nashville, Pittsburg Quilt Market and the Grand Rapids AQS Show. I have also entered some of my quilts in Quilt Shows and have even won some ribbons. 

Peace

  1. I am in NC. I love the quilts. The giveaway fabric is just my color, blues. I have been to Toronto and Montreal. I loved both cities but I admit I'm a wimp, 30 years of Chicago and Milwaukee and I headed South. I don't like the cold.

  2. I'm in North Texas. I was once briefly in Vancouver to board a ship for an Alaskan cruise. I would dearly love to see more of Canada!! I love the cold weather!! Tilleybl@aol.com

  3. I'm in New Zealand and have never been to Canada. It's on my bucket list though. My cousin actually married a Canadian girl many years ago and I have been promising to visit him like forever!! His tales of winter put me off though!

  4. I'm very impressed with your bold, exciting, COLORFUL quilts! Your quilting is fabulous, too.
    I live in Sun Lakes, AZ (just South of Phoenix). So far, I've only visited Vancouver, BC. I loved it and the people of Vancouver who were so gracious and friendly to a couple of tourists. If you're ever there, a visit to Butchart Gardens is a must!

    ReplyDelete
  5. You probably know I live in Melbourne Australia, but it may be news that I visited Canada back in 1980! I went to places such as Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal! It was April and I remember being very cold at times, but I loved it all the same!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I live in Missouri, USA. I have been to Toronto twice and to Windsor twice. I loved Toronto and its museums. Toronto is like a mini UN with its ethnic diversity. I loved it.

  7. I live in Scotland. We travelled with the kids and my MIL to Vancouver, Vancouver Island and did a road trip up into the Rockies - Lake Louise, Athabasca Glacier, etc. We loved our brief glimpse of Canada so much we were tempted to emigrate! I share Kathleen D's opinion of Butchart Gardens - they are beautiful.

  8. I live on New Zealand's South Island and I love it here. I've been to Canada twice. The first time was a round trip of Vancouver, the Rockies and Vancouver Island. The second time was to spend Christmas with some Pseudo-family in Vancouver. Its a beautiful country and I'd love to go back again one of these days...

  9. Greetings from Cape Breton! I've never been to your little corner of the world, yet. I hope to travel out that way some day. Your work is amazing. You must spend hours machine quilting those beautiful pieces!!

  10. Love the FMQ on your gray with blues quilt! It is just beautiful :) I currently live in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. I've lived in Cape Breton and Halifax. I lived in Edmonton, AB for a year and I did like it there. Met lots of great people who I keep in contact with. I came back home because I missed family and the ocean. Thanks for a chance at a great prize! Love that bundle!

We flew up there but my Dad decided to drive back to the States, so we took the ALCAN highway & drove down through Canada. I remember visiting Lake Louise. Thanks for the chance to win.

  19. I loe your modern quilts and quilting! I live in southern Finland, have never been in Canada, not even on the continent :) The closest I've come is reading Lucy M. Montgomery's book series of Anne of Greengables that is locaten on Price Edward's Island if I remember correctly.

  21. Hi there! I am originally from Quebec but I have called Nova Scotia home for almost 20 years. Technically, I have been to Alberta... that is if you count a stopover at the Calgary airport on one of my two trips to BC. I blog at www.runningthimble.blogspot.ca. I love your quilts, and especially the quilting. Just stunning! Especially the last one pictured on this post. Wow.

    ReplyDelete

  27. Hi Leanne, Colleen here. I grew up in Edmonton then moved to Ontario to attend art college, back to Alberta but Calgary that time then finally to Saskatchewan.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Yes, to Alberta and most of your provinces! I spent my first 21 summers in Kingsville, Ont. I do hope your visit to Grand Rapids was pleasant, my hometown. Modern quilters in GR are establishing a modern guild for which I write the blog: GRMQG.blogspot.com. I love the fabrics shown, so spring like- we just were blessed with 18" of snow in 36 hours, not quite Buffalo, but enough to make great seeing days.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Your creations are gorgeous!! I live in a small community north of Lake Superior (Ontario). We travelled out west several years ago on a summer holiday to visit Banff, Jasper, etc etc. I had never seen mountains before so it was amazing!! I want to go back.

    ReplyDelete
  31. It has been a long time since I was in Alberta but I have been to Canada several times and love the Jasper area and and the National parks - my grandparents (3 of them ) were all born in Quebec and my ancestry is Canadian French. Most of my family including myself live in Arkansas now way down south from you but we all lived in Wisconsin for a long time before moving here back in the 1970's

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have been to Winnipeg Canada. My Grandmother's brother moved to Canada in the 1920's. I live in Wisconsin. I think this fabric is so pretty. Thank you for the chance to win. Matsche.christine@yahoo.com

  88. I live in Germany and have been to Alberta and British Columbia in 2008 - and loved it even though there was more snow in the Rockies in July than I expected.

    I blog at http://serendipita.org/ but don't write about sewing or quilting much. I don't have time to sew a lot, but love it. My (now deceased) grandma gave me her treadle machine a few years ago, and I've sewn all my quilts on it. I don't think I would know how to use an electric sewing machine!

    By the way, I love your quilts that feature circles in different colors and matchstick quilting. Thanks for the giveaway!

  89. I am from Florida and sadly have not been to Canada. Canada was on our list when I retired and we RVd but sadly my husband died 6 months before I retired and I can't afford to travel.

  141. I've spent a great deal of time in Canada, it's just a quick bridge or tunnel trip from Michigan into Ontario for me. I was very fortunate about ten years ago to see Christopher Plummer (Captain von Trapp from 'The Sound of Music') perform as King Lear during the Shakespeare in Stratford, Ontario. Other than Ontario I have visited Quebec and New Brunswick.

  170. Great to find your blog! I am currently living in New Brunswick although I have lived in all the Atlantic provinces, growing up on PEI and having my kids in Goose Bay, Labrador (technically a part of Newfoundland though the Labradorians feel they should be a province in their own right!). I lived in Toronto and have travelled extensively through Ontario and Quebec. My hubby and I have a plan to fly to BC, buy a car and take our time camping and hiking across Canada.
