One thing we all agree on is how valuable the internet can be when it comes to gathering information. Last night I met a lady at my quilting group who will be travelling to Whistler B.C. and was wondering if I knew of any quilt shops in the area...Well I haven't the foggiest...but I know some of you do...so if anyone has some info on the quilting hot spots in reach of Whistler, B.C., can you let me know so that I can pass the info on to this lady. Thanks!!!
Right...what have I been up to quilting wise? Well Lynda invited me to join her and some friends in making the feathered star off of HGTV, As you can see this is my version...and here's Lynda's. It was quite a challenge putting it together and it made me stretch my piecing skills...something that is worth doing from time to time. I think sometimes it's easy to stay with what is safe and familiar. Tazzie has recently challenged herself with some beautiful Royal Cross blocks with curved piecing (if you haven't had a look...do so, it will be a stunning quilt) Perhaps that's the magic of a new year? There is something about January that makes you want to try new things...for me...it always involves quilting! So is there anyone else out there challenging their piecing skills in 2008?
