I Sort of Lost My Blogging Mojo

but never fear..... I haven't lost my quilting mojo!!!

Life has a way.....but I'll catch you up on what's been going on in my world.

I finished making a quilt for my little great niece, Abigail, using workshop demo blocks. I love the bright colours and guess what???? Abigail's room is painted purple....what a wonderful coincidence!!!

In September, I did a two day workshop for my guild, the Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild.
 
As you can see.... lots of "Wonky Curves" happening.
 

 
 Gwen's wonderful blocks....she's looking happy!!!
 
 
 Heather....isn't that lovely!


 
Would you look at the wonderful quilting, on these fabulous blocks!!!
 
Good times! Wendy did such a fabulous job planning our first workshop and she even managed to find a venue less than 10 minutes from home. Thanks Wendy!!!!
 
With that workshop completed, I had to prepare for my upcoming workshop in Whistler. Since all my demo blocks were gone....time to make more.
 
 
I decided I would make several wonky curved blocks in two different sizes....naturally I got carried away!!!!
 
 
Then off to Whistler....this was the view from the hotel room!!!

 
 Soooo beautiful!!!!
 
 
 Such a fabulous room....look at those high ceilings, and there was a whole wall of windows with a lovely view!!! 

I did a trunk show on Friday evening and a two day work shop after that. The ladies were so friendly and welcoming....I had a wonderful time!!!
 
Below is some of the incredible work that came out of the workshop....I love watching as everyone's work starts to come alive!
 










 
Thank you for letting me share my process with you. I was thrilled at all the creativity sizzling in the room.

  6. It's interesting that the colors in the quilts generally reflect the outfits on the quilters. Our relationship with color runs deep.

  20. Dropping by from the Blogathon Canada 2014 blog hop..... So nice to meet you! Those wonky curves are incredible and the spiral quilting does so much to enhance the design. Lovely work on all! And I bet Abigail is thrilled with her new quilt, too. It's so pretty!
