QUILT SHOW AND SALE – HALL’S HARBOUR, NS

Our annual quilt show and sale is just around the corner! “Quilts At The Harbour 9″ will be held on Saturday September 29 from 10 to 5, and on Sunday September 30 from Noon until 5.
As usual, we are planning a bake table, free refreshments, an exiting “gently used” table of bargains for quilters and the opportunity to meet friends, compare quilting ideas and perhaps purchase a quilt that will become a family heirloom.We expect there will be some vintage hooked rugs for sale as well as lovely family heirloon quilts for display only.
If you would like to display a quilt or two (or more!!) please email me for particulars. We would love to hear from you, too, if you have quilting fabric or books or notions to put on the gently used table.
If you want to come and enjoy looking at a large variety of lovely quiilts in a wonderful small country church dating to the 1840’s pleae come along. Your free will offering and a percentage on items sold will go to benefit this lovely small rural church. Last year we were able to raise approximately $600 for that purpose.
For a map giving directions to Hall’s Harbour scroll down this page – the show will be held in the West Hall’s Harbour United Baptist Church on West Hall’s Harbour Road. Watch for the bright OPEN banner and our sandwich board sign. Wheelchair accessible and washroom facilities. Bus tours welcome!

A RECENT QUILT

I want to show you a quilt I just finished piecing this morning. It is 50×64 inches – a good snuggle size – and is made from about a dozen different co-ordinated fabrics reproduced from the 1830 to 1880 time period. Featured are fabrics in the indigo and cheddar colourways by Margo Krager. When finished, the quilt will be bound in a dark blue print. This quilt is in a simple, timeless style and can be completed and shipped to you at a cost of $525USD anywhere in North America. Elsewhere shipping will be a little more.
I think my major quiltmaking strengths are in colour choice and design, and I am thrilled by how this one has turned out.
I have so many ideas for using my extensive fabric collection – perhaps you would like me to design something for you using your favourite colours and size.


I am feeling very creative these days as the weather has finally improved and is now more typical of summer on the North Atlantic seacoast, instead of the steamy tropics. Working hard to finish up a couple of commissions and get on to new projects!
