Pathways Stashbusters quilt finally finished

Yesterday at HITC I finished my February Stashbusters quilt. I think I will quilt it tomorrow because it is really pretty and I can't wait to see it finished. Also it is for a friend's birthday back in February so I have to get cracking!
Here is a photo of the top.

Jane at Kindred Spirits Quilt Co.

Today is the Grand Opening at Kindred Spirits Quilt Co. where my best friend Jane has set up shop with her longarm quilting machine. I will be leaving in a few minutes to spend the day in Jane's new home away from home. Congratulations Jane!

OK I am home from Niagara on the Lake and visiting Jane at Kindred Spirits Quilt Co. It was a very busy Grand Opening as everyone wanted to come out and see what the new shop was like.

Here is a photo of Jane in her new quilting room at the shop where she will be on Wednesdays. The rest of the days during the week she will still be quilting from her home studio.

SOLO meeting at Jane's

The last Saturday in February many of the local longarm machine quilters had a SOLO social at Jane's house. I was there for days getting ready for the event and to visit with Jane too of course. We Mari Lyn from Bytowne Threads displaying her threads and we all had to buy a few spools of Aurifil threads. The pot luck lunch was delicious and we even had a cake to celebrate Helen's birthday. Jane was showing us her newly expanded longarm studio and taking registrations for the longarm classes she will be teaching. April is booked up but there are still some spots available for May! Here are some photos from the event.

Quilts of Valor quilts

I will be dropping off 2 of the Quilts of Valor quilts I machine quilted for Quilts and Calicos. Linda has had a few sewing days to make the tops and I will be quilting them so expect to see a few more photos in the future! This organization donates quilts to injured Canadian Forces soldiers. Thanks to everyone who participated.
Here are some photos of the first QOV quilts.
