On Thursday Rita and I went down to Granville Island in Vancouver to The Cloth Shop so I could show her my new project and pick up the first block of the month. Mika...pretty flower is designed by Bella Moon from The Cloth Shop. Maria Roder and Barbara Jean Paxton are the owners of this Vancouver quilting institution and where I took my first quilting class from Jean Koroluk, Barbara Jean's mother. I saw Maria working on this piece back in January and despite it not being my my usual colour palette it spoke to me.The snowflake and heart star blocks are the first month's project. I'm choosing to do it with freezer applique not fused so I can take it along to sit and stitches.
The Cloth Shop. If you call them please say hi from me.
