Get Ready for Quilt Canada 2012 in Halifax!

That's year's Quilt Canada 2012 Conference will be in beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia.  Nova Scotia is one of my favourite places on the planet so I hope to see some of you there.  This promises to be one of the best conferences yet.  I know a number of people on the Local Organizing Committee and I know they are committed to doing a fantastic job of hosting the conference.
I will be teaching four one day workshops at the Halifax conference:
1.  Quilt Marking Mysteries - choosing the correct design for quilting, marking etc. etc.
2.  You've Got Mail - working with postage stamp 9-patches - you'll get 5 different patterns along with discussion on colour choices, 4 different methods of constructing 9-patches and much more.
3.  Fireside Log Cabins - a great stash-busting workshop for all skill levels.  No pressure workshop.
4.  Colour for Stash Quilters - a new approach to colour to help you get your stash organized into useable palettes.  So many quilters have a huge stash but end up buying new fabrics for every new project anyway.


Here are some photos for the workshops I'll be teaching in Halifax.

Students will make up to 6 of these story boards in the one day workshop.  We will discuss and choose patterns suitable to each palette.  A new way to think about colour!!
