This is what I did last night. Made two Ipad bags to send out to Alberta for the Quilt Canada 2015 being held in Lethbridge.
Each year the CQA requests something hand made for each of their delegates attending the conference and this year it is the I Pad carrier. The pattern is available to CQA members and can be found on their website. Wasn't a difficult pattern to follow and now that I've made a couple I may make one for myself...may make some changes for mine,though.....

Here's a view from our back patio door one day this week. Lots of fog floating around in the valley...burned off by lunchtime but it sure was pretty until then.

Here it is...Whoo Knows, designed by Sindy Rodenmayer of Fat Cat Patterns . A block of the month she started 18 months ago. I find it very interesting that the colours are so off. The black is much darker and the greens are not nearly as light. The light shades look almost white and they are beige and taupe....FYI...that's Tigger's paw you see on the left of the picture. She has to inspect everything I do. Maybe she feels a special affinity to this quilt since a couple of days ago she ate several pieces of fabric I had cut for the second last owl I was working on. She loves fabric...I know have to put everything I am working on in a plastic box. Silly Tigger!!
I went to a quilt show in Carsonville. It was held in a little church that had a plaque commemorating the 1967 centennial...the church was actually over 100 years old then and it is still in use. Amazing! This picture is of a wool and flax quilt ...over 100 years old and made from flax and wool harvested at the owner's farm. It looked brand new and very obviously well cared for.
