|I made the wallhanging behind for their 50th The design is from a floor tile in their kitchen. Mum is almost 82 and Dad is 87 and hates getting his photo taken|
The following photos were taken at First Baptist Church on Victoria Street in Amherst. A display by Cumberland Quilters Guild as part of Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival
|my niece wanted me to keep this quilt in mind if I ever need to make a baby quilt in the future|

I really didnt get to do everything I wanted, so I will plan better for next year. I really want to take a workshop or two. Now that my niece is living there, I have a place to stay and enjoy. If you get a chance to visit Amherst during Festival Week, I highly suggest that you do. Oh, I almost forgot...The Zonta Bazaar was amazing. There was so much to see and buy. A wool lover's heaven. Lots of vendors.
I spent all the money I had saved especially for this trip. The new quilt shop in town, Mrs P's Emporium, was just lovely. I found the Fairy Frost and Mirror Ball Dot fat quarters that I had wanted as well as a few other things on my list. At Dayle's. I found the fabric I wanted for pillowcases I am making for my niece. I had an amazing time. AMHERST is AWESOME! Had to stop at It's Sew Time on the drive home...found the perfect tan batiks I have been looking for.
After all the new inspiration I really need to get sewing!
