|"Pink and Blue for You"|
Row x Row quilt for my local modern fabric shop, Patch Halifax. I was very honoured to be asked and I must say, I was a bit intimidated. What a challenge for me! I set to work with the official theme of "On the Go" in mind and decided on showing how our harbour ferries work so hard, going back and forth between Halifax and Dartmouth, bringing people to work, school and play on both sides of the harbour. In case you don't recognize the landmarks, the striped smoke stacks on the left are located at Tuft's Cove generating station, Dartmouth and are seen from all around. In the centre is my rendition of one of our ferries and the buildings on the right are Purdy's Wharf , iconic Halifax waterfront office towers. My first job, when I was 17, was located in the original wharf/pier where it was filled with barrels and boxes of salted fish. I worked for a fish exporter and had an office there where I prepared shipping documents for the salted fish that was shipped to the West Indies. I spent 7 years doing that job. Loved it!

I have one more secret project but that is really a long-term secret.
Another wedding quilt but probably won't be ready to show you until later this year.
I hope you had time to get something quilty done today.
