It is such a joy to be hand quilting again.
FEBRUARY 24, 2014
It has been a long winter here in Toronto.
Some scenes have been very pretty.
Mostly I have been a bear.
But not sleeping!
A sea of half square triangles getting ready for random matches! These are only a fraction of the “lights” for this quilt.
More about this project later!
In the meantime …
If you are going to be in the northwestern Washington state area, I will be teaching “Pumpkin Peel” and a “Small Quilts” class at Two Thimbles Quilt Shop in Bellingham, WA on April 12 & 13. I hope you will join us for lots of fun stitching! For more information you can reach the wonderful folks at Two Thimbles at 360-715-1629.
I will also be speaking at the Moonlight Quilter’s Guild, in Bellingham, on Monday April 14th.
And if you want to spend a week, getting absorbed in the glory of medallion quilts, I will be teaching at the Haliburton School of The Arts from June 16th to June 20th. Come discover the magic and traditions of this wonderful style of quilts while enjoying the peaceful shores of Bark Lake. You can find more information here.

Delicate and festive, this one reminds me of pine boughs. If you look again, do you see the flower in the middle! And the star!
Wishing you and yours a very warm Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Ka Ua Kani Lehua – The Rain That Rustles Lehua Blossoms
Collection of the Honolulu Museum of Art
Another spectacular example! And I am sure while you are looking at it, that it would be no surprise to learn that it was part of the Regal and Royal exhibit at the Honolulu Museum of Art in 2012. It just has that air about it.

Garden Island Quilt
From the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel Collection
This is one non-conformist Hawaiian Quilt!
There is a little tiny radiating design in the centre which carries on “in spirit” in “the corners” of each of the concentric appliqué rings! … I like her style!
