Greetings! I'm delighted to help kick off Blogathon Canada, organized and sponsored by Sew Sisters Quilt Shop a wonderful business run by my high school BFF Judy and her sister Karen. Blogathon Canada is a week-long online party celebrating Canadian quilting bloggers, and I'm honoured to be one of the stops along the way.
I'm Felicity. I've been quilting for over 10 years but when I discovered the online quilting community, I truly felt like I'd found myself as a quilter and it kicked my passion into high gear. I started blogging in January 2010, and it has literally opened up a whole new world of friends and inspiration. This mini quilt is my first "modern" quilt and I haven't looked back.
Here are a few of my other "makes"
"In a (Solid) Pickle"
"Helen Keller Wisdom"
"Sea Glass on Sand"
When I stumbled onto the online quilting community, I had no idea that incredible inspiration and friendships lay ahead of me. I started following a few blogs, then followed links to other blogs and next thing I knew, I had joined the VMQG, and became close friends with many fellow quilters whom I never would have met were it not for the internet. So check out the links to lots of BC quilt bloggers at the end of this post, and their links and so on and be inspired! Be sure to stop by Cathy's too - she's the other Blogathon Blogger for today. The Blogathon button at the top of this post and on my sidebar has the list of all of the Blogathon bloggers for the week - check 'em out!
Before you go, though, would you like to win a little something? I thought so! I chose this cute little combo from Sew Sisters' fabulous offerings. A metre of some fabulous Keep Calm fabric from Timeless Treasures plus 4 coordinating solid FQs will go to one lucky reader.
As usual, I've kept the entry process simple. Just leave a comment. One per reader, please. The giveaway is open to International readers, and please please please make sure that I can easily get your email address if the Random Number Generator chooses your number.
Giveaway will be open though the Blogathon. I'll close it off on November 24th at around 9:00 pm Pacific and announce the winner soon thereafter. Good luck!
