Canada's Big Quilt Bee these days, and not just by me.
I was all ready to bundle it up and ship it off when Anne decided that she might make a block or two.
Grace Noel, that she met at FiberFest last September. Isn't it great? 'With Glowing Hearts - Celebrating 150 Years' is inspired by a love for Canada with maple leaves scattered throughout and classic Canadian icons like hockey sticks and beavers. An interior decorating grad (just last year), for several years she has been successfully entering contests for aspiring designers on Spoonflower. She's also a Dragon's Den winner! But it doesn't end there. Trend-Tex has made her collection the foundation of its annual quilt challenge with the winning designs to be featured at Quilt Market in Houston in the fall. Wow.
So, long story short, Jane is making slab blocks for Canada's Big Quilt Bee too, using the leftovers from the map art. Unfortunately, I don't have any pics to share yet but will see if can get her to share a few. I'm loving how this Big Bee is touching so many in my circle! Just a reminder that if you are making blocks/quilts for this they are due May 30....M
