Shediac Quilt

Janet made this delightful little quilt for a photographer in Shediac, New Brunswick.  Gail Carter of merri-time-memories takes amazing photos in Shediac and area and sells them either framed or as cards and Janet thought that she could use a quilt in some of her photos, so she made one for her. Such a kind and generous gift – isn’t that just like a quilter?

Quilted with the Crazy Puzzle pantograph by Dave Hudson and a linen coloured thread.

Janet did show me some of Gail’s beautiful photos and I was inspired, I thought maybe I should take a special picture with this quilt.  I’d better be careful or I’ll be upping the expectations of quilt photos on my blog, and add just one more thing to my list of things to do.

I fell in love with some of Gail’s framed photos that Janet brought back from Shediac and I am now the proud owner of a beautiful blue door photo.  Gail doesn’t have a web presence, but you can find her in an artist’s booth at Shediac Park Market/March√© au parc de Shediac.

If you bring sunshine into the lives of others, it will shine on you as well.
