Canadian Blogathon... and I am a Host with a Giveaway!



Thank you Sew Sisters for inviting me to the great Canadian Blogathon!

I have a giveaway of 10 Kona Solids fat quarters!  Sew Sisters also has a giveaway sponsored by Robert Kaufman on their blog too!  Keep reading to find out how to enter on my giveaway!


Today I get to tell you a little about myself and show you where to find some other great Canadian blogs!

I am a country girl through and through.   I do love visiting the big city, but my heart belongs on Manitoulin Island in northern Ontario, Canada.  It also belongs to my two little sons and my awesome husband.

My passion is quilting and pretty much everything quilt related.   I call myself an art quilter who loves 3D embellishments.   And by 3D, I mean stick off the quilt alot=)  Take a look at my 3D flowers.
This is 'Whimsical Wonder'


I have started teaching and doing trunk shows on my 3D flowers and embellishments.   

I am different, I admit...for instance, it is not everyday you put bottle caps on a quilt!


This is 'A Walk Through Time'.


I have recently been getting my 3D quilts published into magazines and a few books, so that gets me super excited to see my name in print=)   I love quilting so much that I wanted to promote it in Canada as much as I could so I joined the Board of the Canadian Quilters' Association, which is the national quilting organization in Canada.   I am currently in the role as Vice President and love spreading the word of our organization and the great ways we unite quilters across Canada.

Most days you can find me in my studio dreaming up designs for making 3D quilts or how to add new embellishments onto a quilt.

Check out these super Canadian blogs, and Krista, a fellow Ontario blogger is also a host blogger so be sure to check her out too:




If you want to enter the giveaway, (international entries welcome too=) please leave a comment telling me why you quilt.  If you want a second chance, let me know if you are a new or old follower of my blog.

Thank you Sew Sisters for inviting me to this fun event, and thanks to all of you for stopping by!

Mhairi said...

I quilt as a way to relax and as a form of therapy. I find that being creative keeps me happy and helps me to be a better mum and wife for my family.
Not sure it is cheaper than therapy but it is much more versatile and portable and the results are much prettier!!!

Colleen said...

Quilting has long been my escape from the stress of work and everyday life. Now retired with children grown, quilting is my indulgence and provides the chance to meet so many creative people and make new friends.

Colleen said...

I am a new follower - drawing such inspiration from your work.

Amy's Crafty Shenanigans said...

I started to quilt because it was on my 'bucket' list and I had a three month period of unemployment so I got out my bucket list and haven't looked back! That was 4 years ago and I do find that sewing and quilting keep me sane. Really.

HollyM said...

Funny how some com mentors will say exactly what you want. I'm primarily an art quilter. It gives me a tactile way to express my creativity and to take my mind of my pain.
I love making quilts for family and friends.

KaHolly said...

WOW!! Your work is just amazing!! Why do I quilt? I have to. It's an obsession.

I started quilting just as a kind of time killer, but I find it a good way to unwind after a difficult work day.

Joy said...

Your quilts are so fresh and new. I began quilting only a couple of years ago after I saw a memory quilt that belonged to a friend. It plucked at my heart strings. Once I have chosen the perfect pattern I'll make some for my family.

Thank you for the wonderful giveaway. Solids are so great for showing off a block.

Joy said...

I'm following by email. Thanks for the chance to win those great fabrics.

I love the feel of fabric, the feeling of having created something beautiful. Also quilting takes time and I can curl up on the couch and hand quilt. It is very relaxing. (with full time class I need something to relax with that doesn't smell like rum) =)

Lisa Marie said...

I love to have beautiful things for my home and to give as gifts, and being able to make them myself is just so much fun -- that's why I quilt! Plus I love collecting fabric, and I have to do more with it than just admire it.

EmileeHope said...

I don't remember why I first wanted to quilt, I think the beauty I found in quilts I saw. I love anything handmade and the idea that you start with a pile of fabric or scraps and end up with a beautiful handmade work of art appeals to me! The first quilt I ever made my grandma helped me with and I hand quilted the entire thing. Then I got into baby sized quilts because it is a great size that I can actually complete and feel great about for all my friends and family welcoming a new life into their home...but recently I have started trying larger quilts and I am really enjoying the process and ability to work on a larger "canvas."

Marla's Crafts said...

Marla's Crafts said...

I used to live on Manitoulin Island and I love the area.

ManitoulinGirl said...

I am a relatively new quilter - I love being able to make something that is useful and loved. I'm hoping to continue to improve my skills, but am definitely a beginner. I am blessed to be living on Manitoulin Island! Wonderful place, but I do love to get to the city sometimes too. :-) I am a new follower too.

Joanna said...

I quilt because I love to sew. I have sewn since I was twelve and love it as well as other hand crafts. A few years ago I began to get into quilting and reading bloggers who quilt and it just took off from there.

momofmhasr said...

Your quilts are beautiful! I started quilting when a friend wanted to teach me, I have never looked back, I love it.

Jennifer Scantlebury Vienneau said...

When I sit down to sew, I actually feel my heart rate slow. The only other place I feel this relaxed is when I swim or letter signs. For me it is a meditative state.

Such lovely work you do! I'm a big fan of solids, so thanks for the chance to win this great bundle.

Donna Joy said...

My grandma always quilted and it gives me something to do to use some of my creative ideas. The colors of fabric, the shapes and patterns all blend or contrast to just create something beautiful. So now I can help to keep someone warm or have a unique bag to carry books etc.
Great job on your creativeness, isn't it fun to be unique.

Vivian said...

So nice to meet you!

I have always had a creative outlet. When I discovered quilting a few years ago it was the perfect fit. I could incorporate my love of hand stitching and my need to feel, I am very tactile. I love the fabric, the possibilities with embellishments and the community I have found through quilting. Win win all the way round.

Sunnybec said...
