Well it has been rather a long time since I wrote a blog post- I am not even sure that I remember how but I am going to give it a go. My friend Michele Bilyeu wrote a post about convergence quilts and asked if she could use some photos of my quilts which I was happy to share.
The Convergence Quilt above belonged to my in laws - a gift that I created for them for their 63 wedding anniversary. I love the borders as it was covered in Cardinals, my FIL 's favorite bird. The backing has red birds on it. After they both passed away, the quilt came to live at our home again.
In the photo you can also see my newish quilt room. You can see the wonderful cupboards and part of my fabric stash. The cupboards are fantastic and I really enjoy being able to find what I am looking for just by pulling out the roll out drawers.
A lot has happened since I last posted in 2015. We de-cluttered and packed up our previous house and moved to a large bungalow in an area north of the city of Edmonton called St. Albert, in the fall of 2016. We had lived in our former home for 35 years . It was in the heart of the city of Edmonton . Our old house needed lots of work and we decided we needed a different type of house.
The new house is in a lovely wooded area and has a terrific front portico and a fabulous sheltered pergola over the back deck that we enjoy a lot through out the year. At present, it is very cold and snowy here, so this picture makes me miss the warmer days.
