...I think that's what the guild named of this quilt. This quilt is heading to the Northern Juried Art Show in Gilliam Manitoba in April. I was asked by the guild to take this traditional style quilt and make it "Artsy". That was a problem...it's not an Artsy quilt and no matter what I do to it it will still be a traditional quilt. So not wanting to disappoint my guild I did my best to have fun with it and approached it one block at a time. I think it turned out more whimsical and folky but that is what it 'Whispered' to me. I hope the guild members are happy with it, that is what matters. In the quilt I hid a bee hive, bunny, butterfly, dragonfly and some bear scat ( *big grin* just had too).
I have been quilting for over 20 years and have turned my passion for quilting into a home business. Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting opened it's doors January 2009 on the shores of Schist Lake in Northern Manitoba. I have recently moved to Emo, ON and looking forward to discovering all the beauty of the area and meeting new quilters.
This blog is where I share photos of my quilts as well as my clients quilts. I also enjoy dyeing fabric especially snow dyeing as we have snow 6 months of the year. I have thrown in few personal stories about living on the shores of Schist Lake and now I'm ready to explore and share photos of the area around Emo, Ontario as life isn't all about quilting.
