Welcome to Sew Sisters Quilt Shop's Blogathon Canada. Isn't wonderful to connect with sew many fellow Canadian bloggers. So far we have visited BC and the Maritimes. Today we celebrate Alberta! (Go Stamps Go!)
If you have never been to Alberta you should come! We have lots to offer. Check out Travel Alberta's website.
I have been living in Calgary, Alberta for almost 20 years now, originally from Ontario.
I have been crafting all my life really. My favourite activity in kindergarten was making lacing cards! In Grade 4 we made quilt blocks to put together for a quilt which we then sold raffle tickets for. In grade 5 I took knitting lessons. I taught myself how to embroider in Grade 6. In Grade 11 I took crochet lessons in night school. My hands have always been busy.
I started quilting in 1991 before my first child was born. I was inspired by my great grandmother Genevieve. (see tab at the top) She made wonderful quilts and I am blessed to have many of them.
Oh gosh I am not sure how many quilts I have made over the years, lots. I don't have too many UFO's.
I love makin scrap quilts. Here are a few of my scrap quilts.
