It is Day 3

of Blogathon Canada hosted by Sew Sisters Quilt Shop!

The blogs to visit today are:

Kelsey from Alberta  Everyday Fray

Leanne from Alberta  She Can Quilt

And don’t forget to check out Sew Sisters blog because they will have another awesome giveaway as well. 

My daughter informs me that people in Newfoundland don’t consider it to be a “Maritime province”.  They are okay with Atlantic, but Maritime just won’t do.  I haven’t had time yet to look through all the blogs from yesterday to see if there are any from Newfoundland.  I hope there are.

I have been very behind with my October blocks for the Canadians Quilt swap.  I guess you can tell how behind I am since they are October blocks.  I couldn’t  see a moment in the next week when I could get them done, so I came home from work today and MADE myself work on them.  They were easier than I thought they would be.  So here are two arrow blocks which are on their way to Saskatoon tomorrow…

I’ll see you tomorrow when I’ll be back to let you know which blogs you should check out for Thursday!

  7. I love arrow blocks!! Yours have great colors in them, too. So.... (I'm still digesting there being only two bloggers in the Territories - It's so far north, you'd expect quilting to be very popular. Is it that people don't have as much Internet connection except in your general region?)

  9. Arrow and feather blocks are becoming very popular in quilting. I guess that means I'm going to have to bite the bullet and learn paper piecing!

  17. Actually, your daughter has a very valid point. The Maritime Provinces are PEI, NB and NS. The Atlantic Provinces are these three plus Nfld and Labrador. And as much as we all love Canada, we pretty consider ourselves, PEIslanders first and Canadians second and I know Nflder’s still have a tough time considering themselves anything other than Nflder’s! Then there are Labradorians....a whole 'nother story! lol

  18. Love those arrows with the "low volume" fabrics in the background. Don't these kind of fabrics add a lovely depth to quilts?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I need to get more low volume fabrics in my stash, I have a few white-on-white prints for my snowmen pillows I'm making now. I really like the looks of your arrows!

  49. Life often interferes with quilting projects. While being behind can frustrate you, the feeling of completing the project is worth the wait until you have more time.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Your arrow blocks look great! I like the fabrics you chose. I don't do swaps. It's bad enough that I get behind with the BOMs I start. Just not enough time now, maybe after I retire.
