Tuesday Preview - Canadian Quilt Talk Episode # 65

Happy Tuesday Everyone! 

My special guest on this week's show is Cheryl Arkison and we'll be talking all about how she got started, her wonderful modern quilting books and what she's been up to lately. 

CQT Episode #65 - Modern Quilting with Cheryl Arkison
And you've probably guessed it - if I'm interviewing Cheryl, then we will definitely be talking about modern quilting! Cheryl is a talented Canadian writer, quilt designer, and teacher. If you check out her shop on Etsy - Cheryl Arkison Quilts you just might guess that my favourite pattern is called Oh Canada!

Oh Canada Quilt Pattern by Cheryl Arkison
I would characterize her quilts as modern and scrappy with a refreshing take on using up your stash with improvisational piecing. She is published everywhere in quilting and eating magazines, blogs and books, so listen in this Thursday to hear all about it! Her newest book is coming soon called You Inspire me to Quilt.

This week I'll also be talking about the SNOWFLAKES Postcard Challenge that is well underway, the CQA Trend-Tex Challenge and more...

And here's the winner of this week's Quilter's Corner - Michele Timms! Congrats Michele, you have won the book A Month of Sundays and a little bit of gorgeous fabric to go with it by Cheryl Arkison. 

It was so fun to interview Cheryl Arkison. It's always a thrill to meet cool Canadian Quilters, plus the huge bonus of getting to give away one of her wonderful books. I was thrilled!

So join me this Thursday at 4pm Pacific time to meet Cheryl Arkison and get a glimpse of a day in the life of a great Canadian Quilter.
