I first met Chris through The Needle and Thread Network, where Canadian bloggers get together for there WIPs once a week. Chris lives in Ontario....now I've never been there, but seeing it is part of our beautiful Canada....has to be gorgeous!!!
I'll try to stick closely to the guidelines we were given...LOL.
What I am working on: Well, what am I not working on???? I have a Dresden Plate customer quilt in the frames that I am hand quilting now. I have several quilts to machine quilt on my Tiara...working on them. I am making a dust cover for my Tiara with my friend Connie, and started piecing another quilt top. That is a few things I am working on right now. This is the Dresden Plate quilt...
What makes my creativity different from others: I don't think I am different, except I hand quilt more than machine quilt...does that mean I'm just old??? Lol, nah!! I believe anyone who quilts in any way, is just a creative soul who has found their way to express their love for it.
Why do I create?: Well, quilting is the only thing I have found that I can't get enough of. I literally take one quilt out of the frame, and put another one in!!!! it simply soothes my soul and I have learned so much since starting to blog. This is very true....you are never old to learn!!!!
How do I create?: I'm not a designer by any means, like some of our fellow friends. I usually see something I like and put it together, in my own way. Ask my friend Marla...I eye ball it!!! Right Marla????
How about a few pictures of my work????
this QAYGQAL quilt...machine quilted on domestic machine.
This Remebrance Poppy quilt...a custom order. Hand quilted..
this little quilt was a gift for our RCMP....Machine quilted on Tiara.
This was a custom order of the Bluenose...hand quilted.
Something I spend a lot of my summer doing is gardening...
I hand quilt pretty well very day. Most of the time is spent on customer quilt tops...they piece them and I quilt them. I do hand quilt some of my own....machine quilt most of them lately because I am busy with customer quilts and love it!!
Here are a couple of quilts I've done for others.
This gorgeous quilt was pieced by Annette over at In Stitches and Seams , and I quilted it.
This one was pieced and appliqued by a lady from Western Canada, who lives here in N.B. during the summer months. I've done a few for her...all gorgeous too.
So, now you know me a little better, I hope. Ask me anything and I will try to answer it for you.
I hope I didn't ramble and bore you too much. Before I leave, I want to tell you just where it is I live. I am 2 miles south of the world famous Hopewell Rocks Park...known for the largest flower pots in the world and high tides. Please look it up if you haven't seen this park...it is something else. And if you get a chance....check out my website for more of my work: Shepodys Quilter.
Thanks for listening to me.
I am tagging Brittany from Pickles Quilting...she lives in Arizona, US...if I got that right.
She is fairly new to quilting and only been blogging for about 1 year. It would be so nice of you to visit Brittany and welcome her to our world. She has some interesting works going on.
Connie from Shepody Mountain Crafter...who is one of my neighbours and sewing friends.
I have known her forever!!! She hasn't been blogging for very long, but has been sewing for years. Now I am not telling her age!!!! lol. Connie can make just about anything, and we get together as often as we can with friends to sew and quilt. Quilting is a fairly new thing to Connie, but she is quilting up a storm right now! Take some time to visit her blog and see all the lovely projects on the go there.
