I've had many emails and comments from you telling me that you're following along with the mystery quilt! It's wonderful, I really didn't expect this much participation and I'm so pleased to have you with us. One of the most interesting things is hearing where you're all located. There are some from the US, one for sure from the Netherlands, and one for sure from Australia, and of course there are several from here in Canada with me! Anyway, I would love to know what country you're in. So, if you're following along with the mystery quilt, please leave me a comment and let me know what country you're following from! I'll draw a name from all of those that comment and send out a prize to the winner! I'll leave this post up for a couple of weeks!
Also, if you missed my post yesterday, there is a little sneak peek there if you're interested!
I'm a quilter, love everything about this great craft. I've been quilting since I was just a little girl, blessed to have both of my grandmothers influence and teaching to start me on my way. The first quilt that I remember working on was a Grandmother's Flower Garden. My maternal grandmother, Fanny, helped me get started, I was around 7 or 8 years old. I still have that work, never did finish the quilt though. My maternal grandmother, Dot, often had a quilt in the frame when I was a little girl. I spent many wonderful hours playing under that quilt frame, in my world of imagination. And I was so blessed as I grew a bit older to have her teach me the fine art of hand quilting. Today, I still love hand work, but also love the convenience of today's modern techniques.
I have been blessed beyond measure this past year to be able to open my own quilt shop, I've been dreaming of this for 20 years and finally decided now was the time to stop dreaming and start doing! I hope you'll follow along with me on the journey!
