Oh, Canada!

I have just returned from Toronto! What a great bunch of quilters at the York Heritage Quilt Guild! We had a program and two workshops: Colorwash Hunter Star and the Summer Salsa Lone Star. Thanks to the wonderful organizers:  Erica and Jeannie, Katie, Carolyn and Linda! Katie loaned me a winter coat, which allowed me to bring extra quilts!

It was great to show the newest book − Quick Diamond Quilts − and quilts from all 5 books to the warm and friendly York quilters in Toronto. Even better? Watching the Olympics in Canada as they cheered their athletes to victory! I admire the hard work – seven years of preparation – and think the Canadians are hosting a wonderful Olympic event.

One evening I went with guild members to Glow Restaurant − which features a unique menu of local and healthy offerings. Glow was located right near an ice carving display, and a small figure skating rink. The ceiling changed colors and the menu covers had grasses imbedded in a thick plastic.
