I think quilting and the cold winters of Canada go hand in hand. Is there anything better to do but have a hot cup of cocoa and a warm quilt in your lap ? As a Canada quilt we I believe or inspired by our climate and our surroundings. Our landscape quilt are often of winter wonderlands or  Prairie fields and the oh so beautiful autumn maple leaf. Being a Canadian quilter to me means warmth and friendship. What does it mean to you ?

Hi

I too am from Eastern Ont. and Helen is one of my  dearest quilting buddies. Although I could be her Mom we have so much in common. As I always say ---one of the best things in quilting are the wonderful friendships you make.
