Alberta Wild Rose

In the throes of deep snow and -30C temperatures here in Alberta, it was fantastic to see a beautiful block designed by Lauren MacDonald, a 150 CW Quilt Along participant. It reminded me that Spring and all the flowers are just around the corner. Some of you in the group may have seen the facebook post last week. Many of us were in awe of the block, a variation on the Wild Rose. Lauren has generously allowed me to write instructions for her block and put it out here for you.

The block pattern is on our freebie page on the website. You can make it 6", 9" or 12" finished.

A huge thank you to Lauren!

Quilter Wasn't In

Well okay, I confess, I've been on the couch. Didn't do a darn thing last week except watch chick flicks and sappy feel good movies and on Monday had a home made 4 hour lunch with wine at a girlfriend's home. Yes, I know that the next quilt program is just around the corner. However, the fabric wasn't going together as I wanted it to so it was decided that a break was required for rejuvenation. 

The other thing that was decided is that the 13 biweekly 2018 program will start March 6 and end in August. Details are still to come. My apologies to those that are eager to purchase fabric and begin the program.

Here's to a more productive week,

Happy New Year in Space

Hope every one had a wonderful New Year's Day. 2018 is going to be a fabulous year.
Did every one see 2018's most super Supermoon tonight? If not, you can still see it tomorrow night, January 2. This Supermoon is the biggest and brightest moon in 2018 and a fantastic prelude to our 2018 quilt.

The background colour is between royal and navy blue with gold stars with lemon yellow, orange yellow and lime green in the blocks. The lime green is for the moon being made of green cheese. There are only 12 blocks and the finishing instructions. Stay tuned for details.

Enjoy your week!
