Sew Sisters, a fabulous Canadian online and brick-and-mortar quilt store, is sponsoring a week-long event “Canadian Quilters Connect Blogathon Canada” from November 19 to 24, 2012 to highlight Canadian quilting bloggers’ creativity and talent and give us all a chance to discover some new-to-us blogs. Each day two host bloggers will introduce themselves and their work on their blogs. They will include links to more blogs from their province so you can visit those blogs as well. The two host bloggers will also host a giveaway of some of their favorite goodies from Sew Sisters and you will have a chance to enter two giveaways each day for a week. I’m proud to announce that I will be one of the host bloggers.

When the Inklingo Hunter’s Star collections came out and I saw those fabulous .75″ diamonds in the 6-inch Hunter’s Star collection, I knew I couldn’t resist them for long. I was right. Last night I chose a few 5″ squares and printed the shapes on them and seconds later I had a few sets of 8 to make some 2.5″ LeMoyne Stars. I can tell that making these tiny stars is going to be addictive!
Seams graded, block pressed and now I’m ready to make another and another and another and … well, who knows how many!
Baxter’s getting in some practice at the computer so he’s ready for the Canadian quilters’ blogathon.
After all that work, he curled up to rest in the pink chair.
