Did I tell you about Sew Sisters? They have a brick and mortar shop in Toronto and an on-line store at the link above. They stock Kona solids, lots of beautiful modern fabics, a Canadiana line called Stonehenge which is awesome, and lots of other lovely fabrics. The prices are good, the service is better and every once in a while they have a free shipping in Canada event. And they have been hosting this awesome Canadian blogathon for the last three years. Check them out!
The host bloggers for today are
Lorna from Ontario at Sew Fresh Quilts
Sandy from Ontario at Upstairs Hobby Room
They will have more giveaways, and lists of Ontario bloggers for you to check out. And there will be another giveaway on the Sew Sisters blog.
I have created a monster for myself, having such an awesome giveaway. And deciding that I had to respond to the commenters and check out their blogs! Oh well… There have been quite a few no reply commenters. If you check and find out that you are one of them, you can email me your contact info. Don’t leave another comment – I won’t accept your info update that way.
A few people asked about the arrow blocks. I made these for one of our participants in the Canadians Quilt Bee on Flickr. This might be a closed group – I’m not sure. Anyway here is the link to the tutorial we used. It is from Carla at Grace and Favour blog. And it is pieced, not paper pieced, and is actually quite easy to make.
This is what our weather has been like. We are waiting patiently for more snow and colder temperatures!
