The Canadian quilting heritage is not as strong as our neighbors' south of the border, but we're working on it, eh!?
While I have been published before, this is the first time that I had a chance to talk about how quilting entered my life and how I made the transition into modern quilting. I got a four page spread in the magazine with pictures of some of my favorite quilts.
I am happy to see that the modern quilting movement is gaining recognition in Canada. Quilters are still wanting to know more about what defines a modern quilt and I can see that work is being done in that regards.
If you want to know more about modern quilting, visit The Modern Quilt Guild Website.
As I mention in my article, I have been invited by several guilds in the last year to speak about modern quilting. If your guild is interested in learning more about it, please contact me for details. I am also available to give workshops based on the Modern/Liberated Style of Quilting. Visit my workshops page for details and contact me about fees and availability (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I will also be teaching at Quebec's Biannual Quilt Show, Salon CQQ, from May 29th-31st.
