Many of my readers who are quilters, are familiar with Bonnie Hunter, quilter, teacher and blogger extraordinaire. I have had the link to her blog Quiltville, on my sidebar for quite a while now. I actually met Bonnie last spring when I was lucky enough to take a class from her in Maine. Imagine my surprise tonight when I looked at her most recent post called Hearts Breaking for Canada, and saw one of my quilts!! Bonnie had searched Google Images for "Canadian quilts" and among those she chose was one of mine! Sadly the link did not give her any identifying info, but I assure you it is mine! (Edit: she has since corrected that and cited credit. Thanks Bonnie!) I made it back in 2009, you can read about it here. Many of the red squares came in a little pack I purchased in Ottawa, and it also includes a square of CQA's 25th anniversary fabric. Our national conference, Quilt Canada, was held in Ottawa in 2006 to celebrate the 25th anniversary year. I was there.... So tonight I'm sending love to Ottawa, and to Hamilton to the family of the young reservist soldier who was shot today. So very sad. Such a senseless death. Let's all pray a little harder for Peace... I can't help but wonder if everyone in the world was a quilter, wouldn't it be a kinder and more peaceful place?
May God bless us all... and God Bless Kevin Vickers, a New Brunswick hero!
O Canada, We stand on guard for thee!
