My BQFF (Best Quilting Friend Forever) Miss Kathy B. from Saint John, New Brunswick arrived for a 10 day visit. We do this every year. The first few days of her visit we did our fabric shop hopping. We went to Avonport Discount, Atlantic Fabrics in Dartmouth, It's Sew Time in Elmsdale and of course a day trip to Mahone Bay.
First we used Darlene Zimmerman's Double Wedding Ring ruler to make a table runner. I love how mine turned out but didn't realize til I was all finished sewing that I had sewn the centre white piece in upside down. Arrgh!

|This is Kathy's Twister - she had to wait until she returned home to add the borders. She has the perfect fabric in her stash.|
|My Twister - fun to make with batiks|
|Then we tried our hand at making potholders. We also made a pincushion and a postcard. |
It was a great visit Kathy!
