I Spy…..a Canadian Swamp?…..

I have signed up for Karen’s(Sew Many Ways)  I Spy Swap so yesterday I went to three different quilt shops looking for the perfect I Spy fabric.  I really wanted something Canadian…so what did I end up with?   Why swamp fabric, of course!  I couldn’t find ANYTHING Canadian….but these dragonflies caught my eye!  I was in the last and final quilt shop and I do love dragonflies so I thought what the heck…the frogs are adorable too.  I am sure glad that I signed up for this swap as it is REALLY hard to find I SPY fabric….just try!  Who knew….?

These are Canadian swamps, after all….

It’s a good thing…I hope!P1030023 This is Canada’s newest Quilting Magazine called the Quilter’s Connection!  I finally found it at the Satin Moon Quilt Shop! The first issue is hot off the press….I haven’t had a chance to look at it yet but I DO enjoy the cover wall-hanging…. I bought two copies, one for me and one for a friend!  Hope she likes it!

Also Fiona from Mother’s Cupboard is having a Jelly Roll Give-Away and a Fabric Sale….hop on over for a look.  Very nice stuff!

Have a wonderful Wednesday and Happy Quilting!

Looks like you are on a roll, very cute I spy fabrics. I hadn't seen the magazine yet, I'll have to check it out.

That's going to be a fun swap. Love the dragonfly fabric. The cover on the new magazine looks like something made by Patchwork Pottery...she's from Canada. Can't remember her name at the moment.

Dragonflys are always special and fun. I missed the chance to get in on the swap by a couple of days. Hope to share in the next one. Have fun!!

The material is so cute. I'm going to have to see if I can find that magazine. Our Coles in the city closest to me doesn't have much. I may have to find it in Winnipeg.

oh dear me, what a hardship, having to go to 3 quilt shops in one day. I'm coming with you next time.

Tha magazine looks good - I love getting them when they come out, but not the UK ones, sadly. They don't match the interest or quality of the US or the Australian ones. I'll have to keep my open for the one you showed us.

I made an I Spy a few years ago and it took me a long time to find fabrics, too. Those dragon flies and frogs are sweet and they are perfect.

Love the fabric really nice, as for the new quilting magazine can i be your friend lol i see such wonderful magazines that other countries have the few we do get here in the UK i feel are a bit arty & i love more traditional than ones that are more for the wall well don't have enough space for many photos so none for quilts
Hugs Janice
