Blogathon Canada

The giveaway is now closed. Thanks to ALL who visited and entered. The winner has been announced here!

http://sewsisters.blogspot.ca/

Hello, and welcome to the kick-off day of Blogathon Canada 2013, an annual event brought to you by Sew Sisters Quilt Shop.  Holly from "Holly's Red Bike" and I are privileged to be representing B.C. in the blog hop this year.  Be sure to check out her blog as well!

Let me introduce myself.  My name is Heather and I live on Vancouver Island with my husband and our two sons, who are in grade 5 and grade 7 this year.  The family.....


 And our city.....


I have always been a crafter but I have not always been a quilter.  I began teaching myself how to sew about 4 years ago and I haven't looked back!  I started sewing bags, household/kitchen-y items, aprons, etc., before taking the plunge into quilting.  Since then I have covered every bed in our house (and other people's houses!) with quilts, I make quilts and quilted items for gifts, and I have enjoyed participating in several online bees, making quilt blocks for donation projects.

The local quilting scene where I live is really lacking as far as modern quilters and modern fabric goes.  An attempt was made to start up a modern quilt guild here but we just couldn't make a go of it, which is sad.  For this reason, and also given that I'm a bit of an introvert, I am so thankful for the online quilting community, in which location doesn't have any bearing on finding like-minded friends!!

Let me show you a collage of some of my favourite projects from the last few years, and please feel free to stay and browse around!


Would you like a chance to win something??  Sew Sisters Quilt Shop has graciously provided this sweet prize pack for me to give away to one of you.  Included is a charm pack of Daydream by Kate Spain, 1 metre of Kona White, and 4 Kona fat quarters in coordinating bright colours.


The giveaway is open to everyone, not just Canadians!  To enter, leave a comment letting me know which country you're from, and I will draw a winner at the end of the Blogathon using a random number generator.

In addition to that, Aurifil is going to be sponsoring a thread giveaway at Sew Sisters blog so be sure to pop over there for a chance to win!

There are many wonderful B.C. quilt/sewing blogs, and here is just a sampling to get you started.

My story is quite similar to yours. Been crafting in Wisconsin for...ever. Just recently started quilting, and I love it! The colors in the fabrics that you are giving away are perfect for a quilt I have had in mind for a while now. Thanks for the opportunity!!!

Beautiful colors in your quilting! I have been quilting for seven years and the addiction continues to grow. I am looking at creating my own patterns and taking that addiction further. Thanks for the great give-away opportunity... love the choice of fabrics.
