here are some more photos of the quilts that were put together at the Quilt retreat.
This piece began as a play time to do something with those colourful kaffe fassett fabrics; Hence why they all come together so well. The colours used with each other just make the leafs pop. As is my style, I just thought, "oh this would look nice" and started cutting, and then appliqued. Then thought "oh, there needs to be some focus..." It turned out well, despite my lack of planning. And as always, it is great to get feedback and support from fellow quilters.
This past weekend, I was away again, for a visit and hockey tournement attendance in London, Ontario. My quilting buddy, Beth; took us to some amazing fabric shops in the outskirts of London. Needless to say, my other quilting buddy, Carolyn, and I were in awe with the different fabrics. Two shops and we were done for. Our eyes and brain swimming with ideas and overload with colourful fabrics. And of course our wallets empty. Thanks Beth for a great visit. We will have to come again.
And the Hockey? well, it was great that our midget boys, ended there single A hockey career making it to the Semi-Finals. One of the best hockey games I have seen. There is nothing like just playing the game for the fun of it.
See you soon!
