Oh Canada !

…how I love thee !

LOL, obviously enough to break radio/blog silence after so long.

I haven’t been doing much sewing lately but the group in town asked me to donate some pottery for door prizes. I do have some pottery inventory to choose from but decided to make these instead. Still pottery – right ? !



The above are 8.5″ potholders that I have foundation paper pieced.


These maple leaves aren’t paper pieced but what would Canada Day be without maple leaf potholders !

Not sewing much has not kept me away from the fabric store. I picked up a fat quarter bundle of beautiful saturated colour by Canadian textile artist Libs Elliot . My daughter that lives in the big city was able to track down a bottle of Absolut vodka that bears Libs name and her maple leaf quilt design on it… you know… for starching the fabric 😉 I really like her artist statement and process comments regarding her design and collaboration with Absolut here – you’ll find better pictures too.


Belated Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends and best wishes for a happy 4th of July celebration to my visitors from south of the border.

Thanks for dropping by. Linking up with CrazyMomQuilts
