Come Join the Quilting Bee...

Ladies, the quilt is coming right along... The borders are very close to being totally finished - we just have a few more flowers and a short bit of vine to outline, then we will be ready to do several rolls and we'll be into those nine patches. The weather outlook for tomorrow, Thursday, is not great, but I'm hoping it will not get that bad. I will be home and the "quilting room" will be open. The decision is yours whether to come or not, weather depending. There were only four of us around the frame yesterday, so I'm hoping more people will show up tomorrow or Friday- I'm opening it up to anyone for Friday this week as well. Anytime after 9:30a.m. And of course tonight, Wednesday, after 6:30p.m. you are welcome as well. Call me if you need directions.

A BIG thank you to those of you who have helped so far- Sue R, Barb P, Doris M, Barb H, Donna Y, Gail M, Edith P, Gail B, Ann V, Barb F and Gwenda M..

If you have not visited the Fiber Artists Guild exhibit at Government House yet, you really should make the effort to get there this week as the show finishes on Friday at 4pm. You won't regret it! You can visit my blog here to see some photos, to give you a small "taste"...

EDIT: Update! Late Thursday afternoon: borders are DONE! We are now into the "center" of the quilt. We did several rolls this afternoon and the quilting is progressing quickly. Thanks to the three ladies who braved the snow today to come and quilt. We'll be here again tomorrow (Friday the 28th) - won't you join us?


  1. I just discovered your blog via the purse organizer tutorial from last summer. I would like to invite you to consider attending the second annual quilt show and sale at Centreville Baptist Church in the Annapolis Valley, NS. It will be May 6th and 7th. There may also be a workshop. You can contact the church at to ask for a contact person. We are about 5 and a half hours from Fredericton.

    I am not a quilter but I love and appreciate the creativity and work that you do.

    Sincerely, Janice

  2. So glad that the quilt is progressing. It is beautiful!!
