I love off-season sewing

Today, I'm in Sussex teaching a class.  You might think it's a Christmas project, but you would be wrong.  We are working on a Canada Day Quilt.

There is just something about sewing Christmas projects in July and summer projects at Christmas time. Maybe because it's not a last minute project and there's lots of time to finish... who knows.

I love this "Oh, Canada" pattern by Cheryl Arkinson.   She released the pattern in late June, and I bought it right away and within in days, I was well on my way to having the top done.   And then days after that, on Canada Day actually, it was fully finished....that means free motion machine quilted and then bound..

I knew that I would love to teach this class so with Cheryl's permission, I added it to my portfolio of classes.

Stay tuned for some photos from the class.

I hope that class is able to take place somewhere in the Fredericton area. Lucy
