Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I had so much fun last week at the Eye Candy Quilt Show in Regina. And while I was there, I had the pleasure of interviewing a wonderful pair of quilters. Jeanne Large and Shelley Wicks are the owners of The Quilt Patch in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Beyond the immense job of running a quilt shop, they are pattern designers, 4-time Martingale published authors, fabric designers and more.

This week on Canadian Quilt Talk Episode # 44 we'll talk about all of their adventures as a team and tell you what's inside their latest book called Here Comes Winter, coming out this June with plenty of time for you to get started on those holiday gift projects.
|Book Launch June 3, 2014|
And here's the winner of our weekly Quilter's Corner: Tara Tkachuk with another hilarious story about how a quilt show handles the use of the men's washroom as an overflow at major quilting events. Congratulations Tara, you have won Shelley and Jeanne's book Urban Country Quilts!
Shelley and Jeanne are the co-authors of four books with Martingale:
Tis the Season (2010)
Urban Country Quilts (2011)
Tis the Autumn Season (2013)
Here Comes Winter, releasing in June 2014!
It was so fun to interview these two great women right outside their booth at the quilt show surrounded by wonderful quilts and with quilters walking around wondering what we were chatting about. We laughed so hard when I said, "We are here at The Quilt Path Bootch!"
