Welcome to new members who have just signed up from our gigs in Texas and on the cruise!
I'm back from the cruise (Quebec City to New York City) and it was fantastic. Now John and I are in Texas, preparing for our booth at the Houston Quilt Festival. Come and visit us at Booth #1314.

Fall Colours Quilt Cruise Report
Quebec City to New
It was a great 10 days at sea. Although it was raining in Quebec, Charlottetown and Sydney NS, we still had fun. The Charlottetown guild chose to coincide their quilt show with our arrival, and we even made the local CBC news as a result! http://www.cbc.ca/player/News/Canada/PEI/ID/2408646245/
This is what welcomed us to their show:
In Halifax we had a great class with Laurie Swim. She has so many ideas on how to manipulate fabric to make her art quilts! Here's what everyone did - and they all finished!
In Bar Harbor Maine, we all converged on the Fabricate quilt shop, where they did a "Make and Take" workshop with us - it was very fun to play with someone else's scraps to make a Moebius strip/cowl. This was followed by a wonderful lobster lunch!
Some of our gals continued the party once we arrived in New York City. Alas, I had to miss that part. Check out Susan Purney Mark's blog for details on that part of the trip. We have not yet determined where our next quilting cruise will take us - would you like to make a suggestion? Susan and I really do enjoy doing this, and finding interesting things to teach as we travel in great luxury. It was a fantastic vacation!
What I'm Working On
I'm sorry to say my time is over at home for creating by machine. It's been an amazing time, and I've learned a lot and stretched myself while making the Refractions quilts. For the next few months I'll be working on little hexagons again on my travels. My current favourite size is 3/8", and I think I'll be doing small pieces - trivet size. That way I can try out new colour combinations and use up some scraps. Here's one piece in progress.
October 30 to November 3 We'll be at Booth #1314 at the International Quilt Festival in Houston!
November 4 Baytown TX
John continues to organize our huge tour in 2014, again around the perimeter of the US and Canada. He's just confirmed our FIRST SHOW IN 2016!!! The confirmed gigs are up on the website. We STILL haven't sung in Mississippi or Arkansas. Help!
