Tuesday Preview CQT 70 - Shannon Smith

Happy Tuesday everyone! Join me this week on Canadian Quilt Talk for my 70th episode as I interview Shannon Smith. Her blog is called The Finished Garment - A Sewing, Quilting and Stitching Blog from Montreal. 

Shannon is a Canadian sewing and quilting blogger living in Montreal. She’s been sewing since she was a child, but started blogging her sewing and modern quilting projects at The Finished Garment almost two years ago. In real life, she runs a web design company called Cafe Noir Designs, advocates for a more socially just web, and is the mother of four kids eight and under. I came across her BIG LISTS online which are a fabulous resource for quilters and I wanted to share them with you.

And the Quilter’s Corner winner today is YVETTE SITTER! And I was so excited to see her story originally come in a few months ago because I have met Yvette. She was a scribe for me last year when I judged the Regina Quilt Show. It was truly one of the best run quilt shows I have ever worked at teaching or judging. They hired plenty of judges to handle the size of show and treated us all like queens. It was so much fun!

The prize this week is a fat quarter bundle from Northcott Silk Inc. They are also sponsoring the quilt cruise. Northcott Fabrics are famous to quilters for their Stonehenge Collections. Look for OH CANADA - the latest Stonehenge collection at your local quilt shop. Designed by renowned artist Linda Ludovico, Oh Canada brings the Canadian theme into beautifully detailed textures. Northcott - Cottons That Feel Like Silk!
