Happy Canada Day!

My friend LindaH is so smart. She posted her Canada Day Project earlier this week. It's a sweet Maple Leaf quilt that she'll use as a place to hang her pins collected from various quilt guilds. Go over and have a look at her Maple Leaf post.

I have been working on some fun projects for my niece's upcoming wedding so I can't post pictures, but the projects have been all fun. I'm doing some final hand hemming of some little dresses etc but other than that, my wedding sewing projects are coming to an end. It was fun while it lasted.

So what's next for me? Since it's Canada day tomorrow and we'll be heading to the cottage for a day or 2 of long overdue sunshine. So for now I thought I'd show you some red fabrics that I've been collecting from shops all over the Maritimes. I fell in love with Alex Anderson's quilt from her book Finish It.

I saw this quilt in person when I attended the Ricky Tims seminars in Ocala FL this spring. Of course, there's not only reds, but I had none at all in my stash. So now I have enough reds and with the stash fabrics, I'm ready to start some cutting. I plan to start sewing this in the fall.

Maybe next Canada Day, I'll show you my nice red quilt.

Happy Canada Day Everyone! Back in a few days.

Happy Canada Day Gail! How kind of you to mention my Blog and Maple Leaf wallhanging. Sadly I don't think it's going to be finished for July 1st as I'm still quilting it... Maybe if I work all day tomorrow....?
