'Silhouette'. the Shop Hop Quilt

This is 'Silhouette', the July Shop Hop quilt designed by Shania Sunga.  It features two fabrics designed by her for the quilt.  There is a print with the Great Blue Heron and one with cattails.  The applique in the centre is die cut so all you have to do is snip a few bits, peel off the paper backing and applique in place.  The quilt and fabrics are available at the 10 shop stores exclusively until January 14, 2014.

All the walls in the shop are covered with quilting supplies and samples so we are hanging the quilt on the porch.  There has to be a chair in front of the stand to keep the quilt from tipping into the garden.  Under the balcony, it is protected from rain and sun.  One customer said she liked being able to see it from a distance. 

This is a bag I made with the leftover fabrics from the quilt.  I used 'Among Brenda's Quilts' pattern "Tie a Ribbon".  It will make a great donation to the Enviro-Friends of Coldstream fund raising gala next spring.  We raise funds to run programs and to help maintain the conservation area which is behind the store.  There is a pond created by a dam on the Sydenham River.  Nellie, Tim and I stroll back there in the evening.  Sometimes we see the Great Blue Heron who is a resident.
