This morning we woke up to the first snowfall of the season. I'm not sure I'm ready for all the snow that is yet to come but it sure was a pretty day!


Confetti Cake

I took some pictures of my Confetti Cake quilt this morning. It's a fun Layer Cake pattern that I have made many times and it always comes out with each block looking so different. Lissa Alexander from Moda fabrics blogged about Confetti Cake and shared pictures to show how this difficult-looking quilt block easily comes together.

Oh, and while I’m patiently waiting for my fabric line "Butterfields" to arrive sometime next March, I am working on lots of new patterns!

Here is a sneak peek of the Dresden block I designed with a little twist.
Can't wait to make this one into a quilt!

Weekend at The Royal

 We spent this past weekend at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto, Ontario.
We watched the Canadian Show Jumping Championships which featured some amazing horses and riders. Below is a photo Jenny took of Canadian Olympic rider Ian Millar and his horse Dryden - if you click on it you can make it bigger. She took about 1,000 pictures - she was so excited to be there.

 We also went to see the Christmas windows at the Hudson Bay Co. on the corner of Young and Queen.
So magical!

A weekend in Toronto is never enough time, but we had lots of fun and with all the early Christmas festivities going on it sure has put me in the mood to start quilting up some Christmas projects!
